'French Spiderman' arrested after climbing Philippines skyscraper without safety gear

Daredevil Alain Robert stunned office workers at a 700-ft skyscraper in the Philippines when he appeared outside their windows as he climbed the building.

Footage captured today (January 29) shows Robert sitting on a ledge of the GT International Tower in Makati, moments before descending the 47 storey building.

''He took a short rest and signals to everyone that he's okay by raising his drink,'' wrote the filmer online.

Alain Robert was later arrested by local authorities on a charge of public disturbance.

The urban climber is famous for scaling iconic towers and monuments around the world without any safety equipment.
