Reported to be 3 window washers, but they must be tethered to the side that is facing the building, since you can't see anyone from the live stream. Hopefully they are still attached and ok.

Now reporting it is only 2 window washers. Hopefully that doesn't mean one fell off.

Why.....why isnt there an automated system for ridiculously high buildings. Makes no sense that we have equipment to do larger tasks and washing windows is still something that needs a human to perform. Car wash tech comes to mind.

That building is cursed...
Do you have eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to understand? JESUS CHRIST is the ONLY WAY to SALVATION, DELIVERANCE and PEACE! Soon his grace will be taken from the earth and his WRATH will be poured out. Accept JESUS CHRIST while the GRACE of GOD is still available. May the Peace of God be with you! Love, Pray, Repent and Forgive.

Re: Window Washer Reported Hanging From Disabled Scaffold at 1 World Trade Center
In reflection, can see 2 workers crouched down holding on tightly with arms. hey are on aquite a slant.
How long can their arms hold out?

OMG just said harness can only hold safely
for 1 hour - then must shift position to
help blood flow.
It has been 1 hour and 5 minutes since event.

This shows a rescue basket being lowered to the
men but it is moving very slowly.
2 men in rescue basket on phone.

Regarding rescue plans, weather at 68 stories up,
wind, gusts, is a factor.
