11/03/10 90 W - + 7 - 7 Church Steeple Rescue in Charlotte

FireNews finds this vertiginous video of Charlotte firefighters rescuing a worker from the steeple of First Presbyterian Church on West Trade Street. The guy was suspended about 100 feet in the air, tangled in ropes that became twisted during high winds. The worker wasn't fazed-- he's a paramedic and search and rescuer, so "he kept working." Crews helped untangle his ropes, and pulled him through a window. Nice footage of monster Rescue 10 arriving, as well. Cue AC/DC, the song with the bagpipes.

Now that’s a Rescue Truck!
