Group rappels for a good cause

Some daredevil Chicagoans took quite a plunge Saturday, rappelling 27 stories for a cause.

Cook County Commissoiner John Fritchey was one of the 80 adventure seekers who carefully made his way down the Wit Hotel.

The skyline plunge is a fundraiser for the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago, which raises money and awareness for local lung disease research and programs.

The fun resumes Sunday morning at 9.
