A 20-year-old Virginia man scaled the Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan with suction cups and straps.
He was safely pulled in through a window by police, ending a several-hour stunt that got him to the 21st floor and on to the television screens of millions of people worldwide.
His motive, according to police: he wanted to climb to the top of the tower and eventually get a personal meeting with Donald Trump.
