Pa. Worker stranded 95 feet up

Corey Dick is high on his job.

But getting down was a problem yesterday.

Dick was doing masonry work on a south-central Pennsylvania apartment. But the crane platform he was working on got stuck and Dick was trapped. He couldn't call for help because he didn't have his cell phone with him.

After about 45 minutes someone in the apartment building noticed and called 911.

Firefighters were able to get Dick, but just barely. The 95-foot ladder reached Dick's crane platform with only about 6 inches to spare.
