Man arrested after jumping off Eiffel Tower

According to a local affiliate of CNN, BFMTV, the police in Paris have apprehended a guy for jumping off the Eiffel Tower while wearing a parachute on Thursday.

According to BFMTV, which cited police sources in its story, a guy climbed a pillar of the famous landmark early in the morning local time.

The administration business of the Eiffel Tower, known as SETE (Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel), stated that the individual was located by security in “less than a minute” after entering the premises. The tower’s intervention brigade tried to dissuade him from jumping from the attraction, but their efforts were fruitless, and he went forward with the stunt anyway.

Following the incident that occurred on Thursday, SETE filed a complaint. According to BFMTV, they issued a statement in which they denounced “this type of irresponsible action,” which puts workers on or under the building in danger.

According to BFMTV, the tower’s opening on Thursday morning was somewhat delayed as a result of the event.

The event is the most recent in a string of security problems that have taken place at the facility over the course of the past week.

CNN was informed on Monday that two American men had been found after spending the night hungover on the Eiffel Tower. The management of the landmark confirmed the incident.

The two men, who had tickets for the famed iron tower in Paris on Sunday evening, were “allegedly trapped there due to their excessive alcohol consumption,” according to the statement made by the Paris prosecutor’s office.
