Around 4:30 p.m. a shirtless man went into the construction site at 6 West Broadway, near the T stop, and climbed to the top of a 15-story crane, where he spent about 40 minutes clambering around the cables at the very top before starting to head down.
Around 5:10 p.m., he grabbed onto a rope, under the crane's cab, and was swinging from it. Then the rope snapped and he plunged to the ground.
Police had shut surrounding roads, including the West 4 Street and Broadway bridges. The T had the Red Line bypass Broadway.
