    Russia: Worker dies in sport stadium roof collapse



    Russia: Worker dies in sport stadium roof collapse
    A demolition worker has been killed when a sports complex roof collapsed prematurely in the Russian city of St Petersburg, officials say.
    Dramatic drone footage shows the man with a blow torch cutting through metal supports at the SKK Peterburgskiy when the massive structure disintegrates.
    He is seen trying to scramble to the safety of a cage suspended from a crane, but does not appear to make it.
    The body of a 29-year-old man was found later in the rubble.
    The man was one of four employees cutting metal cables to dismantle the roof of the sports and concert complex.
    Aleksey Anikin, head of the emergencies ministry in St Petersburg, said the other three workers were alive and being questioned by investigators.
    The SKK Peterburgskiy, which was opened in 1980, has hosted concerts and various sports events.
    It is being reconstructed to host the Ice Hockey World Championship in 2023

    As hindsight is often more clear than foresight. It is too bad he was not cutting those members while IN the basket.

    IN the basket AND tied off TO the basket.

    So, what did they think was going to happen? He was going to cut all the connections, walk back to the basket, then on the count of 3 it would then fall straight down?

    They probably should have been using explosives instead of a torch. Those connections could all have been blown safely at one time by one man from a safe distance away on the ground.

    So why wasn't this worker strapped onto the basket?

    It's not like they couldn't see that something wasn't going to happen soon. Look at how much separation there was already in the connections that were previously cut.
