One of the top tourist attractions in Paris was forced to close Monday after a person started to scale the iconic Eiffel Tower.
The operators of the attraction tweeted around 10 a.m. ET that the tourist site was “closed until further notice” after the unidentified climber was spotted on the top side of the tower.
The climber appeared to be wearing a red jacket and was located near the top of the 1,063-foot structure.
“We kindly advise our visitors to postpone their visit,” officials said.
