Window Cleaners in NYC rescued

Cutting a hole in the window allowed the fire department to rescue two cleaners who were trapped outside the 69th floor of One World Trade Center. The platform was suspended at a 75 degree angle and they hung out for an hour and half until they were brought inside.

Cleaning office towers, condos and apartments is a massive job in Toronto as more and more high rise buildings are constructed with the popular glass facade. Making the job even more necessary is that many of them are built along the Gardiner Expressway and winter salt can travel hundreds of metres when high speed traffic (hey, don't laugh, it can happen in Toronto) zips along just metres from the elevated highway.

Instead of platforms these guys hang from ropes
