All Eyes On Trump Tower Climber

CBS2’s Valerie Castro reports.

IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS
COMMUNICATING WITH THE WINDOW.
VALERIE CASTRO IS STILL THERE
AT THE SCENE.
Reporter: POLICE HAVE SET
UP BARRICADES ON EITHER SIDE
OF FIFTH AVENUE SO PEOPLE
CAN'T CROSS THE STREETS.
PEOPLE CAN'T SEE WHAT'S GOING
UP.
PEOPLE ARE WONDERING WHAT'S
GOING ON.
MANY TOURISTS AREN'T SURE IF
THIS IS A PUBLICITY STUNT.
MANY ARE JUST SURPRISED TO
HEAR THAT SOMEONE IS ACTUALLY
CLIMBING THE TOWER.
ONE WOMAN SAYS THIS IS A CRAZY
PERSON.
STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE
MOTIVATION AND INTENTIONS THIS
MAN HAS BY CLIMBING UP.
THE AREA SURROUNDING THE BASE
OF TRUMP TOWER IS SHUT DOWN.
THERE ARE A LOT OF POLICE
VEHICLES, FIRE TRUCKS, A FEW
AMBULANCES.
THIS AREA OBVIOUSLY WILL BE
SHUT DOWN FOR QUITE SOME TIME
AND AGAIN POLICE CONTAINING
THE CROWDS BEHIND THOSE METAL
BARRICADES.
YOU OFTEN SEE IN PLACE FOR A
PARADE OR RALLY HERE ON FIFTH
AVENUE.
BUT IN THIS CASE, IT'S A MUCH
DIFFERENT SITUATION.
YEAH.
THIS IS A STUNT.
IF YOU ARE JUST TUNING IN TO
CBS NEWS AT 5:00, HERE IT IS
AT 5:15.
WE ARE INTO A BROADCAST WHERE
ALL WE HAVE SEEN IS A GUY ON
TRUMP TOWER SCALING THE
BUILDING WITH SUCTION CUPS,
HARNESSES AND WHAT LOOKS LIKE
REPELLING GEAR.
AND THE NYPD IS TRYING TO COAX
HIM OUT OF THERE IN SOME WAY
SOMEHOW.
EMERGENCY SERVICES UNITS ON
THE SCENE.
FIFTH AVENUE SHUT DOWN UNDER
