Toronto firefighters rescue woman from crane

April 26, 2017, Toronto - A firefighter has rescued a woman who was stuck for hours on the pulley of a crane towering about 12 storeys over Wellesley Street in downtown Toronto. The rescue took 2½ hours, in an operation that began around 6 a.m. — more than two hours after emergency crews first received a call about a woman on the crane. An ambulance was waiting beside the crane while the firefighter rappelled her to the ground. The firefighter and a Toronto police emergency task force officer made the climb inside the crane to reach the woman, who seemed to have climbed the crane and then slid down a cable onto the pulley. Police and fire crews said they did not know why the woman was on the crane.
