UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas (AP) — A man who had been holed up in a 150-foot construction crane on a college campus has fallen after an hours-long standoff with Dallas police.
Television footage early Tuesday showed the man hanging precariously from the crane on the campus of Southern Methodist University before falling. His condition wasn't immediately available.
The man spent a sweltering Monday afternoon on the crane that towers over the campus in University Park, a posh north Dallas enclave, after telling officers he was armed and threatened to shoot anyone who approached him.
Special tactics officers from the Dallas Police Department had been working with SMU campus police to manage the scene and try to talk the man down from the crane.
Reports are that the man has died.

7. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
