BOSTON (CBS) – Shortly before the Patriots Super Bowl Parade kicked off in downtown Boston Tuesday morning, two people were spotted in a dangerously high position.

That’s when two people were spotted at the top of the pole, apparently trying to unravel it, high above the hundreds of thousands of people below.

According to John Hancock, the men are certified to be up there managing the banner at 200 Berkeley. One of them has been flying the John Hancock banners since 2002.
