OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) - Emergency crews rescued two people trapped on a lift in downtown Oklahoma City.

Two people, believed to be window washers, were on the lift when it became loose and started swinging out of control.

The lift did hit part of the building, breaking glass.

The two people were rescued around 8:30 a.m. and are safe, fire officials say.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area as roads may be shut down.
