Wow, A Lesson To Always Wear A Hard Hat At A High Rise Jobsite


Recommended Posts

I'm curious if a hard hat would have saved him. I was working around power transmission towers, and I figured that if one of the linemen dropped one of those 1-1/4" bolts from 180' it wouldn't matter much. Dunno.

My father was a member of the hard hatters club, Dec 1963 a 6-1/2" 5/8" bolt fell from the 8th floor of a construction site and hit him right on the top of his head........broke his hard hat but saved his life......he got a plaque and a gold hard hat .........(<not actual size)
