A reader from the USA sent us the following photographs of a man aiming to place a plywood sheet on the façade of a building. We understand that just after the photo was taken he lost control of the panel and dropped it, but thankfully managed to hold on to the ladder and was unhurt.
It would not surprise us if he simply tried again.. sadly, we do not know if it all ended well.
Carrying large plywood panels is nothing new and often ends in success - sometimes as the following video shows, that it is nothing new and does not always end so well.
Falls from this height often result in life changing injuries and even fatalities
Definitely pictures for our Death Wish series.
