Man Climbs Broadcast Tower in Lansing

A man who climbed 400 feet up a Lansing television station tower on Saturday is now safely on the ground, in custody and receiving help.

Around 2 p.m., witnesses say the man wandered on to the grounds of WLNS on Saginaw Street.

He was asked to leave, but instead of walking off the property, the man climbed up the television station tower.

Witnesses gathered for more than an hour watching the man climb up and eventually off of the tower.

It's not known whether or not he will face any charges or why he climbed the transmission tower.
