A daring rescue happened 200 feet in the air above Gaithersburg, Maryland. A worker trapped on the top level of a 200-foot-tall cell phone tower had to be rescued after becoming hypothermic in frigid temperatures.

Firefighters were called to the scene after the man felt unable to get down on his own. Another worker also on the tower was able to carefully secure the man into a harness and get him safely to the ground.
