The man had climbed onto the scaffolding around noon and threatened to jump, but a federal police negotiator was able to convince him to come down. He was taken to safety via a fire ladder and then taken to hospital.

It is about the same man who climbed into a mobile crane on De Brouckèreplein on Saturday evening and then had to be brought down by the fire brigade.
