    Default How NOT to Heel/Butt a Ladder

    Ouch! Hope this guy had the opportunity to get back on the job. You can be sure I will never let this happen.

    Sorry, but this video has been around the block over a hundred times.
    Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

    Probably a poor time to note that if the ladder had been at the PROPER climbing angle,the incident probably would NOT have occured.Lay 'em flat,they fall flat. T.C.

    I've seen this vid about 10 times.

    The first time it was funny, the next times it was like "What was he thinking?"

    It was funny? I cringed when I saw it, did not look like a fun landing.

    it reminds me of people holding manual c-spine, collar goes on and they think they can let go. This guy sees the firefighter near the top of the ladder and thinks its ok to let go.
