    “…Galindo was repairing a portion of the 40-foot-tall telescoping tower, when a cable holding it up snapped and caused the top portions of the tower to collapse on his hands…” “…his wife, Gail Perry, phoned 911 and informed a dispatcher the man was hanging 20 feet in the air with his right arm pinned within a telescoping-type tower…”

    Folks;  Please be careful when working on any tower.  Never climb a telescoping tower that isn’t fully retracted.  The sections only have to shift a small amount for you to have a very bad day.
