Mystery Climber Snaps Pictures Atop Seattle Landmarks
(CBS Seattle) — Startling pictures have surfaced of a man perched atop some Seattle landmarks including the Space Needle and CenturyLink Field, KIRO TV reported.
In one photo, the man looks to be sitting on the roof peering down into CenturyLink Field at night. Another picture shows a man sitting on top of the Space Needle during the time when the roof was painted Galaxy Gold. It’s not clear whether the photos are real or edited images or if it’s even the same man, but the pictures apparently got the attention of the Seattle Seahawks. According to KIRO TV, the Seahawks retweeted one of the pictures with the caption, “Whoa,” but that post was later deleted.
The man or men in the pictures has not come forward and or been identified.
According to KIRO TV, the Space Needle officials didn’t know about the pictures until after they were posted, so the man presumably did not have permission to be there. KIRO TV says Seattle police are investigating.
