  • Window washers stuck in lift basket sent swinging by high winds

Two people, believed to be window cleaners, have been rescued from a lift near the top of an approximately 850-foot skyscraper in Oklahoma City.

Within an hour, the window washers were "successfully rescued" and first responders were examining them for "potential injuries", the Oklahoma City Fire Department said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Multiple windows were broken as the lift swung through the air, sending shards of glass falling to the ground below.

The basket was seen crashing into the side of the building several times as it swung back and forth in the sky.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area as roads may be shut down.
