Commentary

I can't help but wonder what transpired that left the victim in this incident wearing a harness, but without the rope attached. Simply wearing the harness is moot if there is nothing to anchor the equipment. As with all work accidents, obtaining the answers to these questions is vital, and will only be revealed by the outcome of a more in-depth investigation.
