LAS VEGAS – A man stuck dangling from a zipline about 80 feet (24 meters) above a Las Vegas street for nearly an hour is back on the ground after being rescued by firefighters.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue spokesman Timothy Szymanski said firefighters rescued the rider from SlotZilla at the downtown Fremont Street Experience shortly after 3 p.m. Friday.

He said a passer-by called at 2:34 p.m. to report a man stuck above Fourth Street since about 2 p.m.

He said SlotZilla workers stayed with the man while he was suspended and tried to bring him down but eventually asked firefighters on hand to reach him.
