    Default Window cleaners trapped as 60 km winds buffet them

    The ordeal continued for ten before firefighters were able to break a window and drag the two men to safety.



    Only one of the men suffered minor injuries.

    Police cordoned off the area and an investiagtion is taking place to see why the men were working in such high winds.
    they just showed a clip of this on TV, and holy cow! the entire thing swung parallel to the building and smashed right into it, I can't believe there were two people on it!

    Now THIS is why it's just not natural to go more than 2ft above groundlevel. Being stuck in that thing would be my WORST nightmare - I'd die of fright, no question.
