When a 6'5" tower tech was lowered to the bottom of a 760' tower he reportedly was lucid and able to walk on his own before he was transported to a hospital after suffering severe dehydration and possibly heat stroke. But by all accounts he could have easily died if fire department rescuers did not reach him, hydrate him and bring him down in time. Read Full Article Wireless Estimator would like to hear your constructive comments regarding how this could have been avoided. Another area of consideration is: Could a crew from tower-crew-rich Texas been called in to perform the rescue or is it best to leave it to firefighters who are typically well-trained and physically fit? With most of the nation's states having blazing temperatures, it's important to focus upon worker safety and ensure that this incident isn't repeated.
