Two workers stuck 13 floors above ground were able to avoid disaster on Saturday at a Bethesda construction site.

At about 4 p.m. Saturday, a piece of scaffolding malfunctioned as the workers were on the Woodmont Avenue side of the 7770 Norfolk apartment project. The 17-story, 244-unit apartment building is under construction.

MCFRS spokesperson said the two were window washers who were able to cut into the building and get off the piece of scaffolding.

Neither sustained any injuries.
