Two window-washers were rescued from the face of 1 World Trade Center


The new tower stands 1,776 feet and 104 stories. To proceed to safely extract the two window-washers from the scaffold, a rectangle was cut in the window glass 68 stories up. After that, the workers were pulled inside safely, being secured in harnesses. People on the ground had been moved back in case glass began flying. The dramatic rescue was broadcast live on TV. The rescued workers were taken to a hospital to be checked over. Using window-washers workers specially trained to work at great heights is the only way to clean from time to time the windows of this big skyscraper and this is a very dangerous job. The two workers who had Wednesday such an experience are 14 and 5 years old in their occupation. This was a terrible feeling for them and for their rescuers too.
