WEST BERLIN — Two East Germans using a ladder scaled the Berlin Wall under fire from Communist guards before dawn Wednesday and fled safely to West Berlin, police and residents reported. The escapees then went to a bar before reporting to police.

The unidentified men, ages 20 and 23, suffered only abrasions, a police spokesman said.
