What's the matter with Eiffel? Motives of men climbing Eiffel Tower

What's the matter with men's unarmed climbing Eiffel? What's the reason for men's unarmed climbing Eiffel? Many friends don't know. Let's take a look with Xiaobian.

What's the matter with Eiffel

According to the sun on May 20, an unidentified man was arrested at the scene after police spent about 30 minutes negotiating with him after climbing up the Eiffel Tower, a landmark building in Paris, to a height of 900 feet.

According to photos posted on social media, the man, who appears to be about 40 years old, slowly approached the viewing platform at the top of the Eiffel Tower and stopped at 900 feet. Security personnel said the man was found climbing up from the second floor in the early afternoon. Then security personnel quickly evacuated 2500 tourists who visited the tower at that time.

Motives of men climbing Eiffel Tower

It is not clear why the man climbed the tower, and authorities declined to give details of his identity.

A spokesman for the Eiffel Tower said: 'the man entered the tower normally, but when he got to the second floor, he started climbing and finally stopped climbing below the third floor and stayed there. 'a special firefighter climbed up to him to protect him, and a police negotiator negotiated with him. He was in a' very dangerous situation '. Finally, after about half an hour of negotiation, the man was successfully persuaded to surrender, and was subsequently arrested by the police.

As a result of such an accident, the Eiffel Tower has now been closed so that it can check for other potential security vulnerabilities. The opening hours will be announced later. The Eiffel Tower's official twitter account said: 'to avoid waiting too long, we advise tourists to postpone their visit. 'the Eiffel Tower will reopen on Tuesday morning, as before, and promise to pay back those who book tickets but fail to visit, its managers said.

Frequent pickpocketing of Eiffel Tower

In fact, this is not the first time someone has tried to climb the Eiffel Tower. In 2015, James Kingston, a British 'free runner', climbed the tower without permission without a safety rope and tried to avoid the camera while climbing.

The Eiffel Tower, also known as the 'Iron Lady', has just celebrated its 130th birthday. It receives more than 6 million tourists every year, but in recent years, it has suffered from pickpocketing and maintenance problems, and its more than 300 employees have been on strike for these problems. And now, it is troubled by many security problems. Last year, it set up perimeter defense around it to resist the terrorist threat.
