Crane man down

12:00 pm on 4 February 2010

Police negotiators in Auckland have talked down a man who spent more than four hours up a crane.

He had been on the sixth floor platform of a crane in Grafton, near Auckland hospital, since about 6am on Thursday.

Police had to climb the crane to negotiate with the man and eventually he climbed down at about 10.30am.
