INDIANAPOLIS -- A window washer was rescued from Eskenazi Hospital Wednesday afternoon, but he had a little fun while he was up there. 

The Indianapolis Fire Department rope rescue team was called just after 11:30 a.m. for a report of a window washer who was stuck at the 10th story of the hospital.

Officials say the worker was in no immediate danger.

The worker is employed by American National Skyline and told firefighters that the control button stopped working on his machine, causing it to stop on the side of the building. 

Crews were able to safely bring the worker on to the roof of the building just after noon. 

You can watch the rescue in the post below.

The window washer, Timothy Anderson, had a little fun before his daring rescue. Posting to his Facebook page before firefighters arrived: "Living that stuck life right now."
