Two window washers got stuck on a scaffold at the top of the United Nations building on Thursday, the FDNY said.
First responders were called to 405 E. 42nd St., which houses the United Nations’ headquarters, just after 11:25 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.
The workers were stuck at the top floor of the 39-floor building, per the spokesman.
They were rescued by FDNY members about an hour later, around 12:30 p.m., the fire department tweeted.
