Crazy winds throw window cleaners for a scary swing ride on 91st floor

Dear Lord. Cleaning the windows of skyscrapers is already a scary enough job but cleaning windows of the 91st floor of the 1600-foot tall Shanghai World Financial Center while the wind violently throws around the scaffolding like some unhinged, unbuckled roller coaster swing? That is absolutely pants laundering terrifying.

The workers were thankfully rescued but had to ride out the scary ass winds for 15 minutes. I would have passed out in the first 15 seconds. Check out the video:
