Officers arrived to find two people later determined to be UW-Madison students who had climbed a construction crane, Kimberley said.

They originally were observed hanging from the crane and doing pull-ups, and both climbed higher in an attempt to hide from officers, but came down upon the arrival of the Madison Fire Department, Kimberley said.

The students, who were not identified, were cited for trespassing and released at the scene, Kimberley said.
