Damn shame! I seen the aftermath, god bless he and his family. Hard enough to make a living doing what we do, let alone the dangers we face in these work enviroments.

I wonder if John Armstrong would be concerned about the buildings and making steal if it was his son. The way the mans speaks I think so.

My father worked on Zug Island many years ago...makes me appreciate all I have and how it was earned. My heartfelt prayers for the families of this horrible accident.
