*ABOVE AT 39 SECONDS: SEE RAW VIDEO OF THE FALL; AND HEAR THE CROWD APPLAUDING AFTER THE RACCOON SURVIVES*

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Emergency crews were called to help a raccoon who somehow got stuck on the outside of a building Tuesday afternoon. He was several stories high.

A crowd gathered at the bottom of the building to watch as animal control, police and others tried to help the raccoon.

They tried to hook him with a pole-device, and did, but he fell before they got a hold of him.

The raccoon somehow survived the fall to the ground. The crowd cheered when they saw him moving around in the cage, FOX 17 reports.

He was bleeding a bit. Animal control workers say he was taken to a rehabilitation facility and will not be euthanized.
