I remarked that I hope they get some time off work after this traumatic experience. Kevin said, “Yeah, their bosses will tell them, ‘Here sign this waiver and then enjoy some time off.’”
Apparently one guy was hanging onto the collapsing scaffolding, despite his harness. Not that you would sign up for that type of job if you were afraid of heights. But still ... Can you imagine?

“I'm watching a dramatic rescue,” said Kevin. He had phoned me from his office. Apparently the scaffolding of some window washers across the street from his office collapsed. He could see everything from his window, including the firefighters and the news helicopters.
