OKC firefighters rescue window washers near top of Devon Tower

Emergency crews rescued two window washers Wednesday who were trapped in a material lift basket that was spinning out of control and slamming into the side of Oklahoma City's tallest building.

Several windows of the building were broken as the scaffold swung around.

Around 8:30 a.m., officials said "the basket is now secured and firefighters are working to get the two window washers out of the basket".

"The three-sided tower evolved in part from Devon's desire to not "turn its back" on any part of the city".
