NEW YORK (AP) - New York City firefighters have cut window glass and rescued two window washers trapped on scaffolding dangling 69 stories up the side of 1 World Trade Center.

The fire department says the workers were tethered and communicating with rescuers during their ordeal.

A cable on the scaffolding apparently broke around 1 p.m. They were pulled inside the building around 2:15 p.m.
