Scaffolding collapse, rescue in South Florida

(CNN Newsource)

Two constructor workers are back on solid ground, but not after a dramatic high-wire rescue in South Florida.

According to WSVN, two men were doing work on the side of a building when one side of the scaffolding collapsed.

One man remained on the scaffolding. A second man was left dangling from his safety harness. Crews lowered a rescuer from the roof who strapped a harness around the worker and lowered him to a ladder truck. They exchanged a fist bump and pat on the back.

The same rescue worker brought the second worker to the ground.
