After dangling for 90 minutes, firefighters broke out a window on the 69th floor. Two window washers trapped on board stepped carefully through the window.
Window washing is among the most dangerous jobs in America.
During an incident in Denver, a rig crashed back and forth, smashing dozens of windows.
INSIDE EDITION recently got a view from the 63rd floor at One World Trade Center, seeing firsthand how frightening it would be to be dangling from that height.
Window washers at the World Trade Center can turn into legendary personalities. You may recall Roko Camaj. He had washed windows for 23 years. Tragically, he was killed on 9/11.
Now, the new World Trade Center is in place and like any other skycraper, the windows must be washed, even if it is dangerous.
