Window Washers Rescued From 12th Floor of UN Building: FDNY

A pair of window washers were rescued from the 12th floor of the United Nations building on Saturday evening, firefighters said. 

The two workers were reported stuck at 7 p.m., the FDNY said. 

A window on the 12th floor was cut out, allowing the washers to enter the building, the FDNY said. 

The UN General Assembly opens on Tuesday. 

Just a month ago, two window washers became trapped 39 stories high on the same building at 42nd Street near the FDR Drive. Authorities broke a window to help them inside and they were rescued within about an hour on Aug. 16.
