The iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, France has been shut down “until further notice” after a man tried to climb the structure.

Visitors to the tower were evacuated as police, firefighters and a climbing expert assessed the situation.

The man got to the third and highest level of the 81 story tower. A rescuer was seen reaching out to the intruder.

Officials are trying to figure out how the climber got past security to make his way up.
