A window washer is safe after being rescued from near the top of an Omaha high rise.  Officials say the man was working at the First National Center in downtown Omaha yesterday afternoon when his main line malfunctioned, causing him to fall nearly 20 feet off the roof of the building.  The man was caught by his safety harness.  Firefighters rescued the worker, who refused to be taken to a hospital.
