When window installers William Miller and Paul Barker reported to work on Monday, they probably didn’t expect to wind up in the news. Miller and Barker, who were working outside the 55-story Bank of America tower in Atlanta, had just finished installing a window on the 23rd floor and were raising a platform when the motor malfunctioned and they found themselves stuck high above Peachtree Street.
It took about two hours for Atlanta firefighters to rescue the men, who were calm and cool, talked on their cellphones and took in the view. Miller said the ordeal was just another day at the office, and even took pictures from his perch.
Most of us probably haven’t had that type of an adventure at work; much less show such grace under pressure. What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened at your workplace? Did you get scared? How did you handle it? Tell us about it.
