My anxiety just increased by 1,000% while watching this video.
Although they have my respect, I’ll never understand the thrill seekers who will climb to the top of skyscrapers, and dangle from the edge just to say they did it.
I mean yeah, that takes some nuts. But are you clinically insane? Do you want clout that bad? Both? I guess they only know the answer to that…
And don’t even get me started on the people who willingly clean windows on a skyscraper, those who climb massive communications towers or windmills… I get nervous watching it on video.
With that being said, I may have encountered a video involving the most terrifying situation one could be in.
A video has gone viral of a construction worker in Toronto, Canada, who after being tangled in a tagline, was spotted dangling from the crane, hanging on with his hands, suspended hundreds of feet in the air.
“The guy was on the 5th floor and his hand got caught in the tag line went from the 5th floor to the 30th floor before the crane operator noticed. Fortunately he survived with a few bruises on this thumb and a broken wrist.”
The worker is hidden underneath a pallet of some sorts, so it’s impossible to know if the crane operator even knew the worker was hanging on for dear life below.
This is like a real life action scene from some movie you’d watch in the ’80s. I mean, I feel like I’m watching Bruce Willis fight for his life in Die Hard or something like that.
You can hear onlookers and the man videoing the heart pounding event yelling:
“Oh my God how the f*ck did this happen?”
“Somebody tell him to stop before he crushed by this f*cking thing!”
Luckily enough, the distressed worker was able to make a safe landing uninjured, but it does make you wonder how this even happened in the first place.
The company PCL Constructors Canada was overseeing the project and confirmed that he was not seriously injured and the incident is undergoing investigation.
