This isn’t how companies would want to test a safety net at a construction site.
A drunk construction worker jumped off the 36th floor of a building in Lower Manhattan into protective netting one floor below.
He wasn’t injured, but the unidentified worker was fired immediately, according to the Downtown Express. No word on why he jumped.
As the worker made his way up the building, his boss told him to put on a harness. The worker yelled back that he didn’t need one.
Police may charge the worker with reckless endangerment.
The incident happened at the W Hotel construction site. The building previously located at the construction site was damaged and contaminated during the 9/11 attacks and had to be demolished.
