A small crowd gathered around a Nashville, TN tower as emergency workers assisted a maintenance worker who called 911 from the top of the tower early Tuesday morning, March 1. The tower is located in a shopping area south of Nashville, and Nashville Fire Department trucks were easily spotted by shoppers and other passersby as they arrived. The worker was there to perform routine maintenance on the tower.
According to the Tennessean, the worker called for help after he had climbed the tower. He hung up without giving any other details. As emergency personnel arrived, he was able to climb down under his own power.
A Nashville Fire Department spokesman later reported the worker did not suffer any injuries.
