Health and safety at work has really tightened up now on that sort of thing.

Lets not forget this guy took a fall into a burning building.

I've had some minor close calls. One that should have been the safest of falls but so nearly killed me was through the roof of a warehouse office. The lower layer was plaster board and the top layer was chipboard with a gap to accomodate the lower part of a massive old three phase fuseboard I was working on. I stepped a bit too close to the fuseboard and fell through the gap. As I passed down I grabbed all three bare busbars in the fuseboard to slow my descent, fortunately it would seem I never fully grabbed two at the same time or I would have had more to worry about than the fall, which left me a bit dazed amid a pile of busted plaster board.
