    Scaffold Dangling


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ANO07 was in Jersey City, New Jersey when she got a view of 1 World Trade Center, where she could see a scaffold dangling off the side of the building with two workers trapped. She went looking for it after hearing Wolf Blitzer report on the incident. The workers were later rescued.

    Yesterday I found myself on Jersey City waterfront, across the Hudson from Lower Manhattan, watching the scaffold dangling from the new WTC tower. Three helicopters were hovering over the area. It was a partly cloudy, windy kind of day, and I could see the scaffold slightly dangling...and I could only wonder about the two people trapped inside. The sun peeked through the clouds, on and off. Even looking through a long lens, I really couldn't tell what was happening, but at one point the helicopters just left. I knew then that it was over, and I thought it must have been a happy ending. After waiting a few more minutes, I checked my Twitter feed and realized that, indeed, it was a happy ending.
