bad day airstreaming beats good day a power company part 2

hey all

part of my job as a lineman requires me to be able to save a coworker on top of a pole if they are electrocuted.

we use a dummy that is made of canvas and filled with shredded tire chips. it weighs about 225 pounds.

the following link is how not to do it!

pole top rescue

if you have sound turn it up!

i wonder why they call him goober?

john

OUCH!

The question is did the live guy fall on the dummy or the other way around?

Hahaha I'm sorry hahahah I have to laugh. Hope the guy didn't get hurt to bad.

I saw that about a year ago. Still funny. Work computer doesn't have very good speakers and can't trun them up. Didn't know the guys name was Goober. Makes it even more funny.

What a way to get your 15 minutes of fame!
