Firefighters smash glass of highrise to rescue two window washers after platform collapse
The Ministry of Labour has been called in after two window washers had to be rescued from a high-rise.
CP24 is reporting the window washing platform they were on collapsed while they were working on the 25th floor of the building on Yonge Street just south of Eglinton Avenue at around noon today.
Both workers were wearing harnesses, and were briefly left dangling high above the ground below before they managed to make their way to a ledge near the roof of the building.
Firefighters then broke the glass windows near that ledge and pulled both men to safety.
The dramatic rescue was captured by CP24’s cameras. Watch it here.
