CHICAGO (CBS) — A SWAT team was on the scene at Trump Tower Sunday evening after a man suspended himself from a landing at Trump Tower and threatened suicide.
Chicago Police spokesman Tom Ahern said the man was suspended from a landing at the 16th floor of the skyscraper, at 401 N. Wabash Ave.
At 5:27 p.m., Chicago Police officers and a SWAT team, as well as Fire Department personnel, were called for a man threatening suicide from the landing.
SWAT negotiators were at the scene trying to talk with the man Sunday night, and were still at it nearly three hours later.
