As if climbing radio and cell phone towers isn't already inherently dangerous, this poor tower climber faced a completely new threat while simply trying to do his job.

After climbing to the top of a tower to do some maintenance, he faced off against a hawk who was intent on delivering death from above!
Watch as the hawk circles a few times, diving in each time for the kill.

We're assuming the climber retreated to the ground, and was no doubt being attacked their entire way down the tower.
