  This is amazing! I have been working the internet for the past two days literally obsessed with #CraneGirl. Absolutely amazing – the powerful calmness amid such danger, the seemingly impossible feat of sliding down the greasy wires at that height, the mystery of the “why”, and of course, the rescue operation.
