Two Window Washers Had To Be Rescued From Their Basket

This was everywhere yesterday.  Two window washers had to be rescued from a 50-story skyscraper in Oklahoma City.  Their basket somehow got loose and started swinging out of control.

There’s video from ground level of it swinging back and forth . . . and there’s also close-up footage from a news chopper where you see the basket banging into the building as the guys hang on for dear life.

The two men were eventually rescued by first responders who broke out windows on an upper floor of the building and pulled them inside.  One of the window washers had a minor shoulder injury.
