Two window washers rescued from dangling WTC scaffolding

A terrifying scene above the streets of New York City.

Two window washers were working from the top of the 1,776-foot One World Trade Center building when a cable on their scaffolding gave way, leaving them dangling by a single wire on the 68th floor for more than an hour.

New York City firefighters broke through three glass panels, one that was at least two inches thick to get to the men. Both were taken to the hospital and treated for hypothermia.

The Freedom tower officially opened last week and stands on the site of the twin towers that were destroyed on September 11 - 13 years ago.

New York City firefighter Lt. William Ryan was part of the company that led the rescue. He is OutFront.
