Saved by the seat of his pants…will he be able to have kids…do we want him to be able?
Man slips climbing power pole, saved by his pants
DULUTH, Ga. – Authorities say a Georgia man was saved by his pants when
he decided to climb 11 metres up a power pole and slipped. The pants
luckily caught on the metal tower, stopping his fall.
Gwinnett County Fire Department officials believe the 21-year-old
man from Duluth, Ga., had been drinking and ignored a companion’s
suggestion he had climbed far enough up the pole.
Officials did not identify the man.
After his pants caught, the man spent about two hours dangling before a rescue team climbed the tower and got him down.
No charges had been filed Saturday afternoon.
