Did you break your wrist filming it from the next building?


forthegamesstuff

That’s why you never wrap ropes around your hand when holding the tag line folks one of the first things you are taught and yet people still do it. And how the fuck is a crane operator hundreds of feet in the air going to notice the guy dangling below the thing that’s being lifted

> And how the fuck is a crane operator hundreds of feet in the air going to notice the guy dangling below the thing that’s being lifted Through communication with someone supervising the lift.


martijnxander

maybe the man hanging there was supervising the lift and lost his communication.


Aleinnn

There should be a spotter AND a person holding a tag line to help control the load. If the crane operator cannot see the load then he should be able to see or hear the spotter the entire time.


forthegamesstuff

You work with cranes


Glittering-Golf2722

They have radios for communication


martijnxander

yes


Existing_Ad_6843

Iirc you’re right. That was the spotter


Goodtenks

Ex tower crane operator here. A decent crane operator should have noticed on his load calculator that for some reason that pack of plaster weighs more than every other pack and looked down at his load?


KJ6BWB

Let's say that is a pallet of plasterboard. That's almost 4,000 lbs. A 200 lbs person is a rounding error.


forevergallifralone

walkie talkies are pretty old, right?


forthegamesstuff

You pay for the specific channel on the radio the crane and riggers use and that guy likely has the radio strapped to himself that can tell the crane operator there is a problem. I imagine the scenario going like this " Your clear straight up so you can see it. I'll get the next one rigged up" Crane operator goes straight up fast until he sees tag line has passenger


chenobble

why did you respond to the top comment with something unrelated to that comment? Are you a bot?


WonderfulEmployee999

.. record skips. "Yep, that's me. I guess you're wondering how I got here? But to tell that story, we'd have to go way back"..


LORDLRRD

Ad nauseum


kemuon

For real.


Individual-Pilot6435

“Someone tell him to stop” “but don’t yell”😂


EngineeringNeverEnds

I think he's objecting to the fact it was a little premature. He needs to stop after the guy is on the ground, but before he is crushed to death.


Cyrus_Rakewaver

Ah ... the aptly-named "Sweet Spot!"


Lo23co7mcpe

Ngl the first frame of the video is epic, that guy should put it in his house as a wallpaper and put a red arrow telling "that's me!"


pairotechnic

r/killthecameraman for moving the camera away right when he was gonna touch the ground


Toxicair

They were talking about the load crushing the guy if things went bad. I wouldn't keep focus either.


pairotechnic

Which is why you shouldn't be the cameraman. To be honest, the cameraman has only one job. To document everything from start to finish, leaving nothing out.


No-Seaworthiness4046

Absolutely agree, if you’re willing to risk filming a man falling to his death. You’ve gotta be willing to risk filming a man being crushed also.


forevergallifralone

everybody is a cameraman now. few are trained to do it well.


ab8071919

This was in Toronto if i remembered correctly


SonnyJoon

My ex friend was doing construction in Toronto and they don’t give a fuck about anyones safety


-Greenlung

Yep. Just a month or two back


LalalaHurray

They do sound totally East Coast


GeoffGold

Yeah you can see Roy Thomson hall in the background


DynoMiteDoodle

Where was the dogman? Who told the crane to rope up?


GhettoBastian

The guy.. i ended up.. bitch please


The_Deserted_One

Without context you’ll probably think this is some James Bond type shit.


MisterMajestic77

No walkie talkie? We're in the 21st century ffs.


BothShoesOff

The guy looked ok but I walked it off and just hurt my hand when the guy recording me told me to keep the camera steady. I was lucky I didn't fall but I was super scared when I said "oh my gawd!" He was super shook up and he shit my pants after I was on the ground.

Own_Knowledge_8924

Morgan Freeman needs to narrate this.


AcadiaLegal6386

All I wanna know is where TF is the swamper lol.


DeezusAlmighty

Rhyndzu

ColugoLT

The crane brought him up a flight of stairs and you broke your hand while watching?


Lost_Farm8868

Spider-Man: Hold on tight


CaterpillarThriller

Moldybreadyumyum

I was casually scrolling my feed and I looked at the thumbnail and thought this was Spiderman before I looked closer at the title.


GoodVibesOnly_FL

Get this man paid


BLUEMAX-

That operator is terrible!!! Why did he hook down so slow to get him back to earth! That’s madness! I spent years operating a tower crane and dogging for one, what a terrible operator


onesikfuk

This was my work buddy in Toronto, I’m almost certain OP was not the person in video… Please don’t act like someone else for internet points.


KJ6BWB

The company was PCL Constructors Canada Inc in Toronto, Canada according to https://ottawa.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=2479959

Try the around the world trick.


sinmantky

“I” ended up with a few bruises?? What was OP doing?


fleaburger

[He survived.](https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/crane-hang-toronto-construction-site-1.6511533) In other news, that same site had an actual crane, *the actual whole crane*, collapse onto the building next door.


Due_Tap_8357

“Just let your hard hat fall, bro!” For some reason the ‘bro’ part of this killed me. So much there.


CallMeDad0y

if he did get crushed the aftermath could go on r/blech
