Ontario window washer hospitalized after hotel accident

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. – A 26-year-old window washer was hospitalized in critical condition after he was rescued Tuesday morning from a window-washing platform that was dangling from the outside near the top floor at the Hilton Hotel and Suites on Fallsview Boulevard, according to the Niagara Falls Fire department.

The man had become entangled in the platform rigging and lost his balance. He was pulled up to the north tower roof of the hotel and taken by an Air Ambulance to a hospital in Hamilton. The incident remains under investigation by the Ontario Ministry of Labour, according to Niagara Falls officials.
