Four Rescued from Collapsed Scaffolding

In Fort Lauderdale, FL this past Monday, when a scaffold collapsed, 3 workers were left dangling and a 4th fell, buried under a pile of scaffolding.

Check out the video from the SunSentinel news website:

Incidentally, although the news report doesn’t mention it you can see the hanging worker standing in the trauma suspension strap to keep the blood flowing. That, in addition to the fire and rescue, also saved his life.
