New York maintenance workers rescued from 45 floors up

Two maintenance workers in New York have been rescued after they became trapped on the side of the Hearst Tower in Manhattan.

The workers were stuck for more than 30 minutes, 45 floors above ground, after a partial scaffolding collapse.

Fire department officials said rescuers cut open windows on the 44th floor and pulled the men inside to safety.
