SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle firefighters have rescued a window washer who slipped out of his seat and dangled about 65 feet off the ground outside a building at the Seattle Center civic complex.

KIRO-TV helicopter video showed a fire truck ladder reaching the man shortly after noon Thursday and a firefighter helping him climb down.

Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore says the man was hanging from a safety rope about 65 feet off the ground at the concert venue McCaw Hall.

Firefighters first went to the roof, about 15 feet above the man, then lowered a harness to secure him until the ladder truck arrived.
