9/8: Fireman's fall



What a hard job this must be. In this case the gent falling was knocked off the ladder by the pressure of the hose, and he wound up with a broken leg. This is from last week's MSNBC week in pics, and the fire was in Hanover PA.

I thought I remembered that firefighting was the most dangerous job, but this page claims it's only #14. Farming is #2. I would never have guessed that driving a truck is #1, but there are 41,000 motor vehicle deaths every year, and I guess some of them have to be truck drivers.

i thought stone couldnt burn? or am i just insane?

Yeah, stone won't burn, but a house that looks as old as that is almost undoubtedly filled with wooden floors and support beams inside.

that'd be a urn way or redecorating a stone house, torch the inside, clean, rebuild =).

I would guess that being President of the United States of America is pretty high up there. We're on what, #43? And *four* have been assassinated. And at least one other has died in office as well. That's at least 10% fatality rate on the job -- pretty high if I might say so myself.
