I kid you not, he was hanging on a rope. We did a double take, thinking something drastic had just taken place… But he was just cleaning the glass, Filipino style. One guy tied with a hemp rope, three guys on the ground watching him, hoping he would be fine. The three pulled and held onto the rope while the windows were washed. A bucket filled with water was hanging nearby. Trapo or cloth rag was the “squegee of choice” except that it fell after just a few wipes…
The cloth rag got caught on the wires below… so he was lowered, THEN stepped on what could have been a high-tension wire, so he could retrieve the rag. AAACCKKK!! Drives me nuts to see things like this. Aren’t there safety regulations that apply to these kinds of situations? Yipes. Yes, I am back in the Philippines now… just swamped with other commitments. More posts coming soon. :)
