Window washers hang 13 stories over Bethesda when scaffolding drops (Photos)
The aftermath of a scary situation high above the Woodmont Triangle can be seen in these photos, taken after two window washers "self-rescued" themselves from scaffolding dangling 13 stories above Bethesda. Both managed to safely climb back into the building. Their precarious perch began to collapse to one side just after 4:00 PM Saturday. Montgomery County firefighters responded, but a disaster was thankfully averted. The window washers were working on the future 7770 Norfolk luxury apartments on Norfolk Avenue.
