If you're scared of heights, look away now! This footage from local media shows two window washers stranded with the scaffolding dangling from Houston's JPMorgan Chase Tower, a 75 story building - the tallest in Texas. 
According to ABC, the fire officials removed the window on the 71st floor the tallest building in Texas and rescued the men from inside the building. Houston fire spokesman Jay Evans told ABC, both men were safe and neither was injured nor needed any medical treatment.
The men were reportedly stuck at the top of the 1,100-foot-tall JPMorgan Chase Tower in Houston for more than 40 minutes. According to ABC, they had a 'motor malfunction' when they reached the 71st floor. They radioed for help but within seconds their scaffolding had snapped. The wire holding up the suspended platform snapped at 10.40am (Central Time) on Monday and officials declared the incident under control at 11.10am.
