Cody's Call

Cody sent me some pictures from a call they went on yesterday at work. Holy Johnnies! This guy was dumping at Geneva and his breaks weren't working so great - the truck slid right off the edge! I don't know if you can tell from these pictures, but he was trapped inside the cab of the truck - he had hurt his back and they had to break out the window to get him out. Lots of pictures...

These were taken when they first arrived

Um...

Before they could get the driver out, they had to stabilize the truck to make sure it wouldn't fall. They brought in two bulldozers - a D9 (which means it's ginormous) and a smaller one. These next pictures were taken by a News camera.


That's Cody on the left!



So, what did you do yesterday?

K....so, yesterday- I fired two people. So my day was WAY less heroic than Cody's.

Before any of you think I'm a horrible person, I work for a temp agency, so I fire people on a regular basis, and generally, they've earned it.
