Window washer dangles from the top of Louisville building

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A window washer dangling five feet from the top of a downtown Louisville building literally stopped traffic Wednesday.

The man got stuck while working on the Republic Bank building at South Sixth at West Market Streets. He apparently wasn't able to move because of a problem with his safety gear.

Firefighters used a ladder truck with a basket to get the man down.

He's not hurt, but EMS took him to a hospital as a precaution.
