|On a ledge five metres up a window cleaner with a death wish.|
Another mad window cleaner: Spotted in London, UK , a man cleaning windows from a narrow unprotected ledge around five metres in the air.The man was cleaning the windows above the Blanche Eatery in Kensington Church Street, West London.
He had obviously climbed out onto the ledge from window and is trying to hang on to the stonework. The slightest wrong move and he would have fallen onto the pavement below.
While he may well have killed himself, he could easily have landed on a pedestrian and killed or injured them instead! The ledge is so narrow he has to splay his feet sideways to fit them on it.
|A closer look reveals the narrowness of the ledge.|
A definite one for our Death Wish series. Ladder mania: Spotted in Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa, last week five or six men with three ladders, patching up the façade of a building. The man footing the shorter ladder, which is resting on the inclined roof was apparently struggling to stop the base from slipping or moving on the tiles.
