Yankees GM rappels down Stamford building

STAMFORD - Two famous faces made their way down one of Stamford's tallest buildings this morning in a very untraditional manner.

Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman from Darien and Fox News Meteorologist Rick Reichmuth used rope and harnesses to rappel down Landmark Square, which is 21 stories high.

They're practicing for the city's "Heights and Lights" event this Sunday when they'll again rappel down the side of the building with Santa Claus.

Cashman has done it before, but he says each time is its own challenge.

Stamford's "Heights and Lights" event starts at 5 p.m. on Sunday before moving to Latham Park for the city's annual tree lighting ceremony.
