TWO men were left precariously suspended in mid-air in the south of Spain when their work lift became stuck near the top of a nine-storey building.

Emergency crews raced to the scene on a business park in Calle Astronomia in the Andalucian capital of Sevilla.


One of the workers was, reportedly, showing signs of an anxiety attack.

Specially trained firefighters swung into action and abseiled down the face of the office block to attach safety lines and carefully hoist the trapped workers to safety.

The two men were let unscathed by their aerial ordeal – although obviously very shaken.
