LOS ANGELES, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Authorities in Los Angeles said a naked man was lowered from a downtown radio tower in a makeshift pulley system.
Police said the man scaled the 220-foot tower for unknown reasons around 4 p.m. Wednesday and began shedding his clothes while climbing until he was nude, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
The man, who was said to be in his 30s or 40s and possibly an Arizona resident, was wrapped in a blanket and lowered to the ground Wednesday night by a rope-and-pulley system assembled by the Los Angeles Fire Department's search-and-rescue specialists.
