Suicidal! Hispanic Builder's Insane Method of Lifting Cement Buckets / Quick flying cement! Construction workers leap from two floors up to lift buckets using ingenious (and dangerous!) pulley system
Some have described it as ingenious, others have said it's downright stupid.
Either way, there's no arguing that this novel way of lifting cement material up a building site is far quicker than the standard alternative.
And it probably makes for a lot more fun at work. But, for the record, we're not recommending it.
This video shows how two construction workers have come up with their own clever pulley system to lift sand to the third floor of a development.
One man, wearing baggy shorts, a football shirt and what appears to be a summer hat - as opposed to a builder's hard hat - begins by loading up a bucket on the street below with spade-fulls of sand.
The bucket is attached to a long rope which is looped over a pulley system four floors above.
Once the bucket is full, he climbs the 21 steps of a long ladder to the second floor, watched by his colleague leaning out from the floor above.
He reaches out to the rope and pulls himself up to standing on the ledge of the second floor.
Without any hesitation, the agile builder leaps out off the building, holding onto the rope, swinging away from the building as he plummets to the ground.
As he drops he passes the full bucket of sand, attached to the other end of the rope, that is being yanked up to the third floor.
With grace and nonchalance, the construction worker lands gently by the pile of sand on the street as the heavy bucket floats up to its destined co-worker.
