Window Washers in Denver HOLY SMOKES
I'd probably pittle myself.
ditto, along with the other.
I'd have rode that focker out Dr. Strangelove style,,,YeeeeeHaaaaa....Right after I shat myself....
i would've shat myself twice. the second time because i probably would have forgotten that i already did it.
I wonder if those guys are still going to work in that position
Yeap, seen that on FOX News today. Scarry scarry.
The window washers or the Raiders fans...?
i would bet not. that would make for a very long day at work, swinging uncontrollably, screaming your head off, with an extreme possibility of death if you're not careful. if they resecure the scaffold, i'm sure they'll return to work though.
when i was about 18 or 19 yrs old I almost got a job doing that, it only paid like 6.50 an hour to start, i thought what a joke for risking your life like that. so i turned down the job. that pic is the kind of image i thought of and the the other reason why i turned down the job. what a nightmare that would be......WOW!
I wonder who had to pay for all the damage? And could the workers legitimately sue... if so... who?!
On another note... those guys being interviewed were idiots. "Did you see the glass maing?" "Yea maing... it was everywhere"
at one point one of the guys in there lost his coat, and I thought he fell out, LOL
Did you see them walking around up there with the ropes though? Looks like they secured it till the fire department got there
I could hear those guys sphincters slam shut all the way down at the bottom on the video.........
Yikes! You would think that they would be tied in other than to the platform - a safety line.
i have a friend who is a multi millionaire because one of those fell on his mom killing her.
swing stages are often rented and set up by the renter.
if they set it up then i guess it was there fault!
good more work for me (glazer) i work on them all the time, we were talking about that at work today, simaler things (not as bad) have happened to guys at work do to bad wind
i watched that this morning. you would NEVER get me on one of those.
You couldn't pay me enough to do that job after seeing that!
one guy at work threw his smoke off the stage and it landed in a cardbord box on the ground, they had to race down (there slow too) to put it out LOL.
BTW every one although they were bing tossed around, there were in no real danger, if the stage fell away they would each have a lifr line atached to ancors in the roof, and a fall pertection harness on, there werent going any where
Hey Darkshadow, I to am a glazier by trade. Here in the states, (are you a glazier in Canada). we rented the stages and set them up ourselves. Hell, we had to break-em down and reset them-up every time we turned a corner). They are checked each day before using them, by the users. Each man has his own safety line attached to some anchor on the roof. These stages are pretty safe in most cases but that wind can do some wild things. Never happened to me (knocks on wood) Oh yea, I'm in the office now, I did my time in the field.
