MANHATTAN — A man attempting to scale the outside of a New York City bank lost his grip and fell back down to the ground below.

Video posted online showed the man climbing along the side of the entrance of JPMorgan Chase Bank headquarters at Madison Avenue and 46th Street in midtown Manhattan on Friday.

Another man spray-painted letters onto the building, as others could be heard chanting.

As the climber attempted to get to the metal awning over the entrance, he slipped and fell, landing on his side.

Authorities said he was taken to the hospital. His condition wasn’t clear.
