Toronto police apprehend woman who climbed crane cab near waterfront


Toronto police say they have apprehended a women who climbed into a crane cab near the city’s waterfront.

Spokeswoman Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu says the woman, who was topless, was brought down safely after about an hour.

She says all roads that were closed in the area have been reopened.

The Toronto Fire Department says they received a call just after 6:30 a.m. Thursday that a woman climbed into the cab of the crane at a condo construction site.

District Fire Chief Stephan Powell says it isn’t known yet how long the woman had been in the crane cab or how she got there.

In April 2017, a 23-year-old woman was stranded for hours after climbing a crane at a downtown construction site.

She was rescued by a firefighter who climbed up and rappelled down the towering machinery with her.

Marisa Lazo pleaded guilty to two counts of mischief, but received an absolute discharge in January and was ordered to pay a victim surcharge.
