Around 1:40pm this afternoon two window washers working outside the Pacific Business Center on Yan’an Road were killed when they fell from an unknown height onto a car parked below.
Witnesses told reporters that they heard a loud band and then found the men lying on the ground — their broken rope hanging from the 26 story building they were working on.
Immediately after the fall, one of the men was reportedly showing signs of life, while the other appeared to be in extremely critical condition. However, both men soon perished at the scene before they were able to be treated.
Our sentiments go out to those who work in such a treacherous environment.
