As the video shared by RT shows, he was this close to making it out alive:
Unreal. Straight out of an action movie scene – except sadly not. I just don’t understand why this poor man didn’t have a safety harness attaching him to the cage/crane which you’d think was a standard health & safety regulation on a job like this. Russia gonna Russia I suppose. It’s really agonising to see just how close he was to saving himself…
Thoughts with his colleague in the crane as well who had to watch his co-worker go down like that. That’ll be a massive case of survivor’s guilt for sure.
