Window washers rescued after trapped on scaffolding at Houston's tallest building

Crew trapped near 71st floor on Houston's tallest building

 

Rescuers freed two window washers stuck on scaffolding that dangled outside Houston's tallest building Monday.

The scaffolding was clearly tilted outside the 75-story JPMorgan Chase Tower, roughly six stories below the roof. The fire department reports a platform motor cut out before part of the scaffolding gave way.

Crews removed a window and pulled the two workers to safety.

The tower stands more than 1,000 feet tall.
