Window cleaners smashed into building during storm in China


This is the terrifying moment window cleaners were smashed against the side of a tower block during a storm in China.

The men were standing inside two different commercial cradles suspended by high-strength cables from the top of the building in Tianjin when the winds suddenly picked up on May 26.

Footage from a shocked resident shows the workers being flung around as the cradles sway dangerously back and forth before slamming into the structure.

The workers were later helped by local firefighters who arrived at the scene after being called by a resident in the major port city in northeastern China.
