Firefighters and cops descended on 10 Clark St. shortly after 7:00 tonight, following a report of a person stuck on a ledge several stories above the courtyard. They arrived to find this man perched on an air conditioning unit around the 4th floor, apparently having been locked out of his apartment and resorting an unorthodox way to get back in. The Fire Department employed a rope rescue to bring the resident to safety, after which he was brought downstairs to a waiting ambulance for observation.
UPDATE: The man was transported to Long Island College Hospital, with cops treating him an as “emotionally disturbed person.” Early reports of him being a “possible jumper” were not immediately confirmed, however, and a fire department source on the scene believed him to be a locked-out resident. Additional info will be made available, if forthcoming.
