Seen in handcuffs following her rescue, onlookers will have to wait for more details to find out answers to the many questions the situation begs (how did she get up there? why? how long was she up there? etc.). Of course, Twitter has been quick to speculate and joke about the situation. See how Twitter reacted to the great Toronto crane rescue of 2017.

In the good old days, one of the Toronto newspapers would already have a second crane erected for the purpose of interviewing Crane Woman

We’ve all done stupid things in our youth. This illegal thrill seeker stuck on the crane takes stupidity to a new level! #Toronto
