Firefighters rescued two window washers who were trapped on a scaffold outside the 45th floor of a New York skyscraper on Wednesday, June 12.
The two-person window washing crew was working outside the Hearst Tower in Midtown Manhattan when their suspended platform got stuck.
Firefighters cut out a window and pulled the men inside to safety.
The fire department decided cutting the window was safer than hoisting the men to the roof.
