[TowerTalk] TOWER ACCIDENT
Thu, 23 Mar 2000 04:51:26 -0800 (PST)
A very sad incident. I can't get with the "victim
bashing" thread! These were guys with families and
were apparently trying to do a favor for a friend.
It doesn't matter whether they were CB'ers, hams, or
professionals. Maybe it was human error and maybe
some type of mechanical failure. If you think only
"dumb CB'ers" make catastrophic mistakes, check out
http://ethics.tamu.edu/ethics and see the story of
the collapse of a 1500 TV tower while being erected
with the loss of several lives and the complete
destruction of the tower and transmitter building.
This was being build by professionals.
Spring is almost here and I have tower work to do
myself. Lets all be safe and sensible, I don't want
to read any more stories like this!
