2 rescued after scaffolding malfunctions in Boston

BOSTON (AP) — Two workers were rescued from a scaffold dangling off a building in Boston on Thursday, officials said.

Boston Fire Department said on Twitter that the scaffold was located on a building in Chinatown and malfunctioned at around 11 a.m.

One side of the scaffold fell, causing the equipment to hang at a steep angle around the 12th floor of the building.

At least one worker was pulled safely into the building because a window was shattered by the falling scaffold.

The fire department said two others had to be rescued by firefighters. None of the workers required hospitalization.
