A camera captured some frightening moments in New York City- a man dangling from a scaffold six stories up was rescued in front of hundreds of onlookers.

The man was working on the side of a residential building in Gramercy Park.

He was apparently on a window washing scaffold when he slipped and fell. A safety harness kept him from crashing to the pavement.

The dramatic rescue was met by cheers from the street below.
