Santa Rappels Down Skyscraper Delivering Gifts To Children

Santa Claus ditched the traditional chimney and rappelled down a high-rise tower on a downtown public square in Berlin to deliver gifts to all the good boys and girls.

He faced a dizzying descent from the top of the tower, some 100 meters up. He first got down to the cafe on the 24th floor with only a rickety rope ladder to help him.

The children watched in excitement as he greeted them through the windows before climbing inside to dole out presents, and emptying out the rest of his sack later outside the building.
