To Wake a Sleeping Window Washer Or Not?
I heard this news yesterday, Window Washer Falls Asleep on 20th Floor. A really tired window washer fell asleep while washing windows at the 20th floor.
A window washer working on a downtown Nashville high-rise building apparently fell asleep on the job, authorities say.
The man, whom fire officials did not immediately identify, was cleaning the glass on the 20th floor of the Fifth Third Bank building on Church Street Friday when several onlookers noticed he was not moving.
The man came to after firefighters tugged on his ropes, then held up a sign from inside the window to get his attention. The worker lowered himself to the sidewalk, where he was examined by paramedics.
The question is, do you wake him or wait for him to naturally wake up? What if he is startled and falls off? :)
