Window Washer Survives 11-story Fall from Building in San Francisco’s Financial District

By Kelly Balamuth on November 21, 2014

A man who was washing windows suffered critical injuries after falling 11 stories from the top of the Sterling Bank and Trust building in San Francisco on November 21, 2014, according to NBC News.

Police Lt. Ed Del Carlo said that they worker was preparing to work when he fell off the apparatus and landed on a car. The roof of the car was smashed in and the rear windshield shattered, but the driver of the car was not hurt.

The window washer was taken to San Francisco General Hospital in critical condition. Safety engineers arrived at the scene to establish exactly what had happened. The window washer worked for a window cleaning company which had been fined for safety violations in the past.

This incident happened just two weeks after two window washers in New York City had to be rescued after being stranded on top of the World Trade Center on November 12, 2014. Last month in Irvine, California, two window washers had to be rescued after being stuck for hours near the top of a 19 story high-rise.
