Oklahoma City - Two people, believed to be window washers, have been rescued from a scaffold near the top of an approximately 850-foot (259 meters) skyscraper in Oklahoma City.


The Oklahoma City Fire Department says on Twitter that the two were stranded shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday outside the 50-floor Devon Tower.

Firefighters managed to secure the scaffold that was dangling from the top of the building and pull the two to safety about 8:30 a.m. Video from the scene showed the scaffold banging against the building and breaking windows.

Fire officials did not immediately return phone calls for further comment. It was not immediately clear whether anyone was injured.
