DALLAS (KXAN) — Firefighters rescued two window washers from a north Dallas building, Wednesday afternoon.
The washers were dangling from the 15-story Prosperity Bank building at 9330 LBJ Freeway, according to NBC DFW. The cause of the scaffolding malfunction is currently unknown.
Firefighters with Dallas Fire-Rescue said the washers’ safety equipment worked as it should have and kept them from falling. NBC DFW estimated wind speed at 10-15 mph.
The scaffolding could be seen hanging vertically off the building. The wind was not strong enough to move the dangling window washers or the scaffolding during the rescue.
While attempts to raise the men to the roof failed, video showed they were eventually able to lower the last stranded window washer safely to the ground.
