    Worker Rescued from Space Mountain's Roof

    The title pretty much explains it. A contracted worker was cleaning the roof when his harness came loose, causing him to fall (slide) down the roof of Space Mountain.

    ..And now we go live to the OC Register who has more details. I've always wanted to say that.

    As painful as his injuries sound, it still sounds like fun to slide down the roof of space mountain. Hose that thing down, i'll bring the inflatable.

    I wonder if the Anaheim Fire Marshall is related to Al.

    Oh No! Now OSHA is going to make them put a fence on the roof of Space Mountain.

    They don't have staff that cleans it? Why an outside company? Is it only an occasional thing?

    I'm not sure I would characterize a broken leg, broken collarbone, possible broken ribs and cuts as "okay".

    If this is a contractor, who is responsible for the safety gear?

    The report said he got only bruises and lacerations from the fall. Aren't ya talking about the maintenance man who was hit by a rocket earlier this year?


    See ya walkin' right down the middle of o'l Main Street USA

    Re: Worker Rescued from Space Mountain's Roof

    Well, it makes a lot more sense to me now that I know that an outside contractor cleans the thing. It's become rather dirty now and then as I've visited over the years.

    The fact that there isn't some sort of regular cleaning crew around the park(s) actually makes a lot more sense all around, considering all the dirty things I've seen over time.

    I don't know what report you read, but the one in the link mentions several broken bones

    Doubtful. A fence would not have helped where he was. OSHA would only recommend a fence in an area where it would make sense, like preventing workers and riders from falling off the vine.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    While Space is a cone shaped mountain it has a level area on the lower end of it, which is where the worker stopped his fall.

    I'm sure in the inspection the detail will come out. Did the anchor fail, or his line that was attached to the anchor?
