DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: This live development that we're watching here in Atlanta, Georgia: the rescue operation -- the delicate operation, still going on here on this highway overpass. That cherry-picker is a little bit in the way -- the ladder -- but behind that is the cab of a tractor-trailer hanging over the side of an overpass. That is, once again, highway 285, the freeway that forms a giant circle around the city of Atlanta, and that is the northwest corner of that circling freeway.
A very dangerous area of the freeway; and this on top of a morning where it has been chilly and slick and wet and some dangerous driving conditions here in Atlanta.
Once again, there is a driver inside the cab of that tractor- trailer as it dangles over the side of that overpass; and rescuers trying to get to him. As we understand it from our affiliate WSV, who is also bringing us these pictures, the driver is unresponsive, making this rescue operation all the more difficult.
We will continue to monitor that.
