Up a ladder on thin ice

A man spotted in the UK up a ladder set up on ice, talking on his mobile while working on some electrics.

We think this came from the Liverpool area the man has a good ladder with stability feet and he is using it reasonably well. However – as our correspondent says: “This guy had one hand screwing something and the other using his mobile and the ladder was set up on half an inch of ice.”

So while he was not high up, working this way with two hands off the ladder and thick ice a slight slip from the base of the ladder due to the imbalance caused by his phone antics and he would have been in a pile on the floor.

Probably not a real Death Wish but.. an example of poor practice for sure.

Maybe not a Death Wish but hardly good practice
