Two Austrian Window Cleaners Have a Narrow Escape 144 Metres Up

Reach and Wash Window Cleaning SystemProfessional cleaners take great pains to make sure they do an excellent job. Cleaning can involve many different tasks and can be done in many locations. For example office buildings require the exterior to be cleaned as well as the interior. This is usually done by using a window cleaning cradle attached to the side of the building, going up and down on wires.

However one pair of window cleaners had a narrow escape recently,   while they were cleaning the windows of the DC Tower 1 in Vienna, Austria had a very narrow escape! It is not completely clear what happened but pictures of the incident showed that the cradle was positioned at an alarming angle, with the workers hanging on to stay in it.

There were strong winds at the time which could have contributed to the incident, but nothing is known for sure. However they did get down to the ground safely thanks to the intervention of local firefighters.
