The two people, who were window washers, were at the mercy of mother nature.

You can see their lift in the video above swinging out of control on top of the Devon Tower Wednesday morning.

The lift smashed into the building several times as rescuers tried to bring the basket under control.

Eventually, crews were able to get ropes to the workers and they managed to tie the basket off and lower it to the roof of the building.

Investigators walked out to the roof to see the damage the building sustained.

Firefighters say the two men in the basket were critical to the successful rescue.

There were no serious injuries reported.
