It was a tense few minutes for a window-washing crew outside the tenth floor of a downtown building Monday afternoon.

As the storms moved through the city, the winds picked up the crew's basket and started tossing it against the side of the Bank of America building.

"I looked up there and I saw a basket flying around," said witness David Aguilar.

Aguilar said the wind pulled their basket about 1o feet away from the building and crashed it into the nearest window.

For their own safety, the crew shattered the window and climbed into the building.

There are no reports of an injuries.
