Taking sky-high risks to earn a living

workers scaling a broadcasting antenna video
Are you afraid of heights?  If yes, for today you can stop here.  Cos what we have today is an extraordinary video showing two transmission workers scaling a broadcasting antenna... no small feat considering the antenna tops a whopping 1,768 feet!  That’s higher than Chicago’s Willis Tower!  And what’s more?  Most of the ascent is done without even a safety line.  This 6 minute video was originally posted a few months ago on TheOnlineEngineer.org.  The video then subsequently went viral on YouTube and other video sharing sites, albeight being removed one by one following a copyright claim.  However, SKY News Online has permission to show it... and here it is... Just make sure you are sitting down whilst watching it.

Watch these two workers scale a broadcasting antenna here.
