This article covered an accident about a Dallas-area construction worker who fell 25 feet form his ladder. Officials believe high winds were a factor in the accident. EMTs attempted all lifesaving measures but were ultimately unable to bring him back. The man had been a roofing contractor and had discussed not getting on the roof due to high winds.
I do not like finding articles like this one. There is no positive ending. His family is left without him.
Please never use your ladder when it is windy. No job or deadline is worth you risking your life. Be aware of the weather conditions before you climb your ladder. If anything seems off or makes you second guess climbing your ladder, don’t climb the ladder until the conditions change.
This story breaks my heart, and I don’t want anyone else or anyone else’s family to be in the same tragic situation.
