Window washers dangle from skyscraper

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (CNN) - It was a close call for two window washers in Oklahoma City after their lift became loose while they were cleaning a skyscraper.

It was a frightening moment as the lift started swinging erratically more than 800 feet above the ground.

The rescue took about 45 minutes during which time, the lift struck the building and shattered windows and sent glass and debris falling to the ground.

Both men were eventually rescued and have been treated for injuries.
