Maintenance workers stranded 45-stories high in scaffolding incident – John Berman reports

Two maintenance workers were stranded when their scaffolding snapped 45-stories above a Manhattan street yesteday. The Hearst Tower has a unique zigzag shape and requires a complex window-washing scaffold. That made getting the men to safety even trickier. John Berman has the story.

“Neither of the men were injured in Wednesday's incident,” Berman says. “And authorities say people below were never in danger. The scaffold was firmly secured the entire time."

However, working with scaffolding is a dangerous profession. "According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than 60 deaths and about 4,500 high-rise related injuries each year.”
