paris - Special units of the police and fire brigade got a man from the top of a bell tower in the heart of Paris on Thursday. According to Parisian media, the 'church tower' climber provided 'surrealistic scenes' on top of the Saint-Eustache church, because he had brought a harp and a large kite. With this he installed himself at the top of the building in the first district of the city.
Passers-by recorded the sight with surprise. For the troops who were called in to bring him down, the incident was not entertaining, according to the mayor of the district, Jean-François Legaret. According to the mayor, the man put himself, passersby and the people who helped him to the ground floor, in danger. The man has been arrested. He would have previously carried out risky climbs in Paris, as far as is known without a harp.
