2 Window Washers Rescued After Being Trapped Outside The 68th Floor Of 1 World Trade Center: PICTURES

Two window washers were rescued after being trapped on a dangling scaffolding in downtown Manhattan, CBS New York reported.

The window-washing scaffolding is now hanging from the 1 World Trade Center skyscraper near the 68th floor. The workers were secured in the scaffolding after a cable broke and it began to hang from the building.

“The washers were done cleaning the windows and were about to ascend to to the top of the tower when the cable that pulls the scaffold up became loose,” CBS New York reported.

The windows on 1 World Trade Center aren’t removable, so rescue workers had to cut through the glass on the building to free the workers, according to ABC7 New York.

New York fire department officials said the workers didn’t appear to be in “imminent danger” while they were waiting to be rescued, according to NBC 4 New York. Authorities say, the men was dangling at a 75-degree angle with a steady 7-mph wind pushing the platform.
