NEW YORK — New York City officials don't yet know why a cable malfunctioned and left a scaffold dangling precariously on the 1 World Trade Center tower, where two window washers were stuck for nearly two hours before a dramatic rescue.

Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro (NEYE'-groh) says firefighters used diamond cutters to saw through a two-layered glass window and bring the workers to safety Wednesday afternoon.

He says the workers had mild hypothermia after their ordeal outside the 69th floor of the nation's tallest building.
