Window Washers Rescued from One World Trade Center

By Brian Flood 

Drama unfolded on live TV this afternoon when two men were trapped on scaffolding dangling above the 69th floor of One World Trade Center. TV footage focused on the dangling rig that was hanging at an extremely dangerous angle with two window washers trapped on board.

The major cable news networks all went live to the dramatic event, which ended when the two men were rescued through a hole made through the building’s window. One World Trade Center home to publishing company Condé Nast among other employees, opened for business just last Monday.
