After spending more than an hour dangling from the tallest building in the Western hemisphere, two window washers who were at 1 World Trade Center will have one heck of a story to tell the kids.
The incident began around midday Friday. Reports say the workers were headed up the building when one of the cables became loose, leaving the workers dangling at the 69th floor of the 1,776-foot building.
Both workers were wearing harnesses required by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration when the cable failed.
