SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

A worker high above the Galleria Mall in Scottsdale was rescued after he became stranded nearly 70 feet in the air in a hydraulic scissor-lift.

Technical rescue teams from Scottsdale, Phoenix and Tempe worked to get the man down from the lift high above the mall near 4300 N. Scottsdale Road just after 2:30 p.m., according to a Scottsdale Fire Department spokesman said.

A fire department ladder truck with a bucket was used to transfer the worker from the stranded lift to the ground. He was not hurt, the spokesman said.

The worker, who was not identified, told officials he was testing the lift when it failed.
