Man climbing San Francisco skyscraper
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A man is climbing the Millennium Tower in San Francisco.
The man, in his 50s, is believed to be Dan Goodwin, also known as "Skyscraper Man."
Goodwin started climbing around 2:15 p.m.
San Francisco police say the man has refused to come down and police are waiting at the top of the building to arrest him if he makes it to the top.
Mission Street is closed from Beale to Fremont streets.
The US$350 million project was developed by Millennium Partners of New York City, designed by Handel Architects, engineered by DeSimone Consulting Engineers and constructed by Webcor Builders. At 645 ft (197 m), it is the tallest concrete structure in San Francisco, the fourth tallest building in San Francisco overall, and the tallest since 345 California Street in 1986.
Why would the cops arrest him though ? Is there a specific law which says "don't scale tall buildings" ?
