If You Can See What I Can See When Them Cleaning Windows

According to the Daily Mail Online (and picked-up by most of the national media), two men were rescued from a collapsed window cleaning platform on the 69th floor of the One World Trade Center which opened last week. We've got some dramatic photos and video.

The two workers (Juan Lopez and Juan Lizama from Upgrade Services) were left in fear of their lives for an hour-and-a-half before rescue workers from theNew York City Fire Department  smashed the glass be the platfrom and hauled them in.

ThisWeekinFM reported the opening of the 104 storey tower last week which stands at 1,776 feet (that's 1776).
