Two men were arrested Sunday for allegedly climbing 75 feet up an extension crane.

Police say a witness to the dangerous stunt called police around 12:45 a.m. from the 1100 block of Interquest Parkway on the north side of Colorado Springs.

Zach Yager, 25, and Jack Sohns, 23 were able to climb back down, according to police, but the Heavy Rescue unit was still called out to make sure no one else was stuck on the crane.

A supervisor at the site reportedly told police nothing was missing or damaged.

Yager and Sohns are facing trespassing charges.
