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.

A crowd that gathered around cheered when the bird was finally lowered down from the ledge.
