CBS2 reports that Tuesday afternoon around 4:20 p.m., Los Angles SWAT officers were called to the scene on West Cesar Chavez Avenue in Los Angeles to resuce a woman who had climbed the crane.

Workers turned off the power to the crane and about 6:20 p.m. SWAT officers reached the women and persuaded her to climb down.

Later Tuesday night, a man was arrested in downtown Los Angelas who had also cimbed a crane. The man was believed to be a copycat of the previous incident.
