High Winds Make for a Terrifying Experience for These Window Washers

The window washers in the footage above were trapped at the mercy of high winds for 15 minutes on the 91st floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center April 2. The scaffolding they were perched upon swayed drastically from side to side and violently hit the windows of the 1,600-foot-tall building (shown in the photo below) numerous times. According to this article at Gizmodo, the Shanghai World Financial Center is the seventh tallest building in the world. Can you imagine? My heart is beating out of my chest just from watching the video!

OMG! It's almost like some twisted amusement park ride where you are thrown about in a boat-like container. Did they make it out okay??
