Tower crane operator lifts tradesmen to safety

A fire broke out on the top floors of the world trade centre in Brussels yesterday engulfing the tower crane which had been working on the building - which is currently closed for refurbishment - in smoke.

The operator however stayed at his post while he carefully lifted a cradle of tradesmen to the safety of the building opposite.

The entire thing was captured on video.


I agree. That operator showed courage under fire (no pun intended)

To those trolls who gave Mr Mayes comment a thumbs down, I have one question ; Do the letters F O mean anything to you ?

That tower crane operator is a true hero, he stayed in the seat to save them lads at a massive risk to himself. Hope he’s recognised for his bravery.
