VIDEO: Two workers were pulled from scaffolding that was dangling from the side of an apartment building in Boston's Chinatown on Thursday morning.
The incident happened 13 stories in the air at Tai Tung Village, a housing and business complex.
Witness Andres Mateo told NBC10 Boston he saw the scaffolding drop. "I saw the guy hanging from the rope," Meteo recalled.
He said as he started recording with his cellphone, one man was pulled inside a window by firefighters. The other man was taken in after firefighters broke through the glass.
"Both workers were brought in safely and they were immediately taken to Boston EMS just for an evaluation. They both appeared to be fine," said Jonathan Hernandez of the Boston Fire Department.
