One World Trade Center Window Washers Trapped On 68th Floor Rescued

One World Trade Center window washers trapped on the 68th floor have been rescued by the FDNY, after a horrifying incident in Lower Manhattan. A cable which was supporting the scaffold the window washers stood on snaps, and the two men have been dangling almost 1000 feet in the air from the New York streets.

The window washers were in grave danger, trapped on the south side of the newly built 1776 foot tall One World Trade Center. They have since been saved by the FDNY, who cut a hole through two layers of glass in order to reach the men.

FDNY firefighters have attached cables to the window washers to rescue them. From there they guide the stranded men back into building safely, while the whole ordeal plays out on live television.
