A Kansas construction worker fell 120 feet and has surprisingly survived during a
work-related accident. According to the Pratt County Sheriff, two men were working on a wind
turbine when they both fell off on Sunday morning near Pratt. The workers
were repairing a blade on a wind generator when one worker fell over a
hundred feet. Emergency responders found the man coherent but was seriously
injured. Emergency responders were shocked when the man was able to stand
after the fall. The other worker was found 120 feet in the air, hanging
from his safety harness. The man was safely lowered in a construction
basket. He was not seriously injured. It is unknown what caused the accident
or if one of the workers was not wearing his safety harness. According
to General Electric, they are investigating the accident and have not
released the workers' names.
