What is the most dangerous thing that happened to you at work?

What was the most dangerous situation I have found myself in at work?

.

I will be totally very honest.

When I joined the US Navy, my first command station was on the USS Abraham Lincoln and I was aboard the ship in June 2002. My first assignment on the aircraft carrier was ABE (Aviation Petty Officer Team) launching and recovering equipment.

Our two main locations for our work assignment were inside the aircraft carrier's engine rooms and also on the flight deck.

I worked at both locations for many hours a day, more than 14 hours a day non-stop during the deployment operation.

  • What was so dangerous about my job at the beginning of my Navy career inside the aircraft carrier was working with the arrest cables. It was very hard work and very dangerous too.

But, this was the most dangerous situation of all. ABE sailors catching jets with arrest cables (gears).

I have heard many stories of people who can die or cut their legs if a small error occurs with the stop wire when catching 100 mph planes flying directly into the flight deck of the aircraft carrier.

This job is tremendously dangerous and unpredictable at the same time.

Very real story. !!!

This was my first professional job in the US Navy on the aircraft carrier.

There has never been a situation where you have been with a related job that was much more dangerous than catching fighter jets on the flight deck going 50 to 100 miles per hour and trying to land those planes on the aircraft carrier.

This was definitely a very insane job in the entire career of the US Navy.

I was one of the very lucky sailors to do this for a living on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. (LOL).

Fortunately, I am still alive to tell the story about the capture of many famous fighter jets on the aircraft carrier of the USS Abraham Lincoln.

It doesn't really work, but when I was working on a film set as part of a film project when I was in college.

I am a film student and, according to tradition, we often allow juniors to help us during our shoots to allow them to gain some experience so they know what to do during their shoots. So during this particular film project, I was the head of the Production Design team. This means that I am in charge of the scenery, the costumes and where each props goes. And as with all film projects, we have very few human resources. Especially my department of which there are only three of us, included

It doesn't really work, but when I was working on a film set as part of a film project when I was in college.

I am a film student and, according to tradition, we often allow juniors to help us during our shoots to allow them to gain some experience so they know what to do during their shoots. So during this particular film project, I was the head of the Production Design team. This means that I am in charge of the scenery, the costumes and where each props goes. And as with all film projects, we have very few human resources. Especially my department of which there are only three of us, including me.

So on day 3 of the shoot, in the middle of a scene, I was standing next to one of the actresses who was not required to act in this particular scene. She, in turn, was sitting next to one of our largest lights that easily weighs at least 10kg and could get incredibly hot when turned on.

Then at some point something out of the corner of my eye caught my eye, and I turned just in time to see this particular light fall towards the unsuspecting actress's head, which could kill her instantly, as not only is it heavy. to boot, but also hot.

Even now, years later, I still have no idea what possessed me to do what I did at the time.

I lunged towards the actress, using my BARE HAND to keep the light from falling on her head and pushed her to the ground where she landed with a loud crash (and probably damaging it). Obviously, at this point, it had caught everyone's attention, and everyone was going crazy because my entire right hand was bleeding (the palm area). The vice principal is the only one who has enough wits to come up with some cloths to keep the blood from dripping all over the floor and she took me to the nearest bathroom to wash the blood and stop it.

(I probably scared the girls in the bathroom at the time, when I walked in there with a tied hand full of bloodstained fabrics)

At some point, my teacher went into the girls' bathroom because the producer had called him on the phone and told him what had happened. He took one look at me and took me to the nearest hospital after I told my department what to do for the next scenes.

I had to get a skin graft as the light was hot enough to burn the skin on my palm. And I was not allowed to do any lifting for two months after that, which also means that I spent the rest of the session delegating the physical work to members of my department.

I later learned from the AD when I returned the next day that one of the juniors who were delegated to the Lighting Department was responsible for the particular light that also ended up nearly killing the actress. Apparently he didn't bother to check if the light stand locks were secure and didn't even use enough sandbags to make sure it didn't fall off.

The producer and director combined were yelling at this young man for over an hour while I was in the hospital that I listened to.

This is also an important lesson that my entire class learned that day - always double check and double check equipment and accessories, ESPECIALLY lights!
