DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We just had to show this picture from we're getting in live WCBS, New York City. That is indeed the Statue of Liberty, and as we understand, the parasailor with the motor attached was trying to sail off of the Statue of Liberty, and as you can tell, the stunt did not go well. And the parasailor is stuck up on the arm of the Statue of Liberty. The rescue goes on right now. No word on the condition of the parasailor. Apparently the Statue of Liberty has survived the stunt OK. But these are live pictures once again from WCBS.

We're getting word that the air police are responding, New York police are trying to respond to this person dangling from the arm and the everyone to of the statue of liberty. We'll keep our eye on this and bring you more pictures of this in just a bit.
