SUN CITY -- Phoenix Fire and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office have confirmed that a man who had climbed to the top of a high-voltage power tower has climbed down.

The incident happened Tuesday night. The man had climbed to the very top of a high-voltage tower in Sun City.

Once there the man sat on a cross member and dangled his legs off the side of the tower.

The tower is about 200-feet tall.

It is not known why he climbed the tower, but he did get onto the ground safely.

This is the second such incident in less than a week. Last week a man climbed a power tower in Mesa, climbing about 100-feet up the tower.
