(KMOV) – A window washer was rescued after nearly falling from the building he was cleaning in Clayton Monday morning.

Authorities said the man was washing a window outside the 23rd floor of the Clayton on the Park building in the 8020 block of Bonhomme Ave. around 8 a.m. when he had a hardware failure.

Officials said the victim fell about six feet before rescue crews responded to the scene and threw him some rescue lines from the roof.

The worker then switched to the rescue lines and was hoisted to safety.  No injuries were reported.

Additional details were not immediately available.
