Workers Dangle From Downtown Building

Last updated on Friday, August 15, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Three roofing company workers dangled from the M&I building in Downtown Indianapolis for over an hour Thursday.

The three were lowering themselves on scaffolding from the 28th to the 6th floor when a cable broke. Their safety equipment worked and left them dangling from their harnesses.

Indianapolis Fire Department Rope Rescue Team members were lowered down the side of the building to rescue the three men. All three were in stable condition with no serious injuries.
