Pastor spends 3 days 50 feet in the air

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (AP) - August 15, 2010

Pastor T.J. McCormick, of Coastal Community Church, had pledged to stay on the lift until 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies were donated for kids in Collier City.

McCormick braved summer heat and rain storms from the time his mission began Tuesday until he stepped down from the lift Thursday night, after the 1,000 backpacks were collected. Nonetheless, he says he'd do it again.
