There was a high-in-the-sky emergency, as two window washers, working at the Millennium Tower complex, got stuck while they were cleaning outside the 10th floor. That is until the San Francisco Fire Department came to the rescue. "We were basically sending a rescue group up to the roof, to try to repel down to them, while we were coming down from below with our aerial ladder to try to see if our ladder would reach up, and then also going straight to the 10th floor, to see if we could pull them in through the window," said Division Chief Michael Thompson. Ultimately, firefighters pulled the workers to safety through windows they opened on the 10th floor. The fire department says, the window washers started working at 7:00 am, but for some reason around Noon, their rig got stuck. "It was crazy, crazy," exclaimed, Cory, one of the window washers who did not want to give his last name.
