CHICAGO (WLS) -- A loose pet parrot was rescued in Chicago's Loop Sunday.
A fire crew that was returning from an EMS run earlier in the day in downtown was flagged down to assist with getting a pet bird down from a window ledge at East Michigan Avenue and East Jackson Drive, according to Chicago fire officials.
The citizen asked for a ladder, but instead, a crew member used a pole to help get the bird down.
The rescue was caught on video.
"Just when you think you've seen it all in #Chicago," the person who took the video posted on social media.
A crowd that gathered around cheered when the bird was finally lowered down from the ledge.
