Vehicles from the police, ambulance service and specialized teams were around Casa Confetti in De Uithof on Tuesday afternoon, after receiving a call about a person who was confused and could potentially be a threat to themselves.

Despite the large amount of vehicles and the presence of the arrest unit, a police spokesman said there was no criminal offense and the person was not a threat to others. The special teams always accompany the police when the incident involves high altitudes because they are the ones best equipped to deal with this kind of situation, the spokesman added. 

Fortunately, the incident ended well, but the police did not say whether the person is still in the building. UU campus security helped to cordon off the site at the request of the emergency services, which left the area around 2:30 PM.
