This painter was stranded dangling 12 storeys up

By Taylor Heyman

A very lucky escape thanks to the fire service.

A painter was left dangling from safety ropes after his scaffolding equipment tipped.

The man, seen wearing white overalls in the video, was swiftly rescued by Miami Fire and Rescue. The team attached a rope to his harness before lowering him down to the ground.

After the phenomenal rescue, the man was taken to hospital to be looked over but was unharmed in the incident.

That’s a pretty exciting (or scary) story to tell the family when you get home from work.
