Ann Arbor firefighters rescued a college student who got stuck while rappelling from the roof of a fraternity house near the University of Michigan campus Thursday night, officials said.

Firefighters responded to the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house at 1601 Washtenaw Ave. around 11:30 p.m. and found the man dangling between the third- and second-story roofs, Battalion Chief Kevin Cook said.

The contraption the man was using to rappel to the ground jammed and he could not get up or down safely, Cook said.

Firefighters used a ladder truck to reach the man, described in reports only as a college student, and cut the rope. He was not injured.
