Two workers needed rescue after getting stuck in a crane approximately 75 feet off the ground.

The rescue unfolded outside the Morristown United Methodist Church in Morristown, New Jersey.

The workers became stuck in the crane just after 2:00 p.m.

Another crane was raised, but could not reach them.

A third crane was then raised, but it also came up about ten feet short.
