How the FDNY rescued the WTC window washers

Two men survived every window washer's worst nightmare. Their scaffolding collapsed, leaving them dangling hundreds of feet above the streets of New York City. It happened outside the 68th floor of one of the world's most famous addresses, One World Trade Center. Anderson breaks down the FDNY's heroic efforts that saved these two men.

Gerard McEneaney knows what it is like to work while suspended outside of skyscrapers. He is a field representative for the local window washers' union. He told Anderson that when one side of the scaffolding stopped moving the men likely had about two seconds to react.
