    It’s just a shame no matter what. Much too young. Please don’t leave snarky remarks, this man leaves behind a wife and children. Terrible accident.

    No harness?? Anybody in a lift is required to wear a harness? Where was his supervisor or was He the supervisor cause we all know they don’t follow the rules.
