Woman stuck at top of 50-ft yacht mast rescued

A woman, who was stuck about 50 feet up in the air at Carolina Beach State Park, North Carolina, has successfully made it back down to her boat

Sandra Clemons was doing maintenance at the top of her sailboat mast when she got stuck for almost an hour.

She and her husband Robert have been docked at the marina for a couple of days. They're in town from Florida and are travelling up the coast to Maine. Robert pulled Sandra up the mast in a harness on Wednesday afternoon

But the equipment locked up when he tried to bring her down. Sandra said she never felt unsafe, but did feel uncomfortable being in that position for so long. Several agencies responded to the incident.

With short news video.
