Bad Day For Russian Window Cleaner

A Russian man had a bad day after he was left dangling from the 15th floor after his window cleaning attempt went awry.
Terrifying Footage Shows Russian Window Cleaner Who Slipped and Dangled Helplessly While 15 Stories in the Air: The leading thought for anyone who has ever looked up at a window cleaner as he or she calmly carried out their business while quite high in the sky is, most likely, some variation of "Wow. What would they do if they slipped?" Thankfully, such horror rarely occurs and is thus just a passing thought for those chronically afraid of heights. However, as shown in this footage obtained, even the most skilled of window cleaners are not completely above making a small but detrimental error.

After hanging from the window frame for half an hour, neighbours broke down the man's door and were successfully able to pull him back inside. It is thought the man had fallen out of the window while attempting to clean the glass.
The footage, reportedly captured by someone witnessing the incident as it transpired, shows the unidentified man reportedly dangling helplessly while 15 stories high in the Russian city of Novosibirsk. With his shirt blocking his view and ability to quickly problem-solve his way out of a harrowing mishap, the man is forced to scream for help until a neighbor eventually broke down a door and pulled him to safety.

The scariest part? The man was allegedly reportedly to be left dangling for "around 30 minutes." Witnesses reportedly called local authorities after noticing the man needed assistance, though the neighbors actually beat them to the rescue. Here's to hoping this guy is taking it easy for the rest of the week.
