- The FDNY rescued two window washers who got stuck on a stalled scaffold 60 stories up in Manhattan.

The incident happened at 1717 Broadway, between West 54th Street and West 55th Street just before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Firefighters handed the men a radio so they could communicate during the rescue operation. The FDNY cut a hole in a window on the 62nd floor. The workers were able to climb into the building through the hole.

Medics evaluated the men at the scene. They were fine, officials said.

The rescue took about an hour.
