NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A window washer working on a downtown Nashville high-rise building apparently feel asleep on the job, authorities say.

The man, whom fire officials did not immediately identify, was cleaning the glass on the 20th floor of the Fifth Third Bank building on Church Street Friday when several onlookers noticed he was not moving.

The man came to after firefighters tugged on his ropes, then held up a sign from inside the window to get his attention. The worker lowered himself to the sidewalk, where he was examined by paramedics.

I don't understand how he could've fallen asleep at such a high altitude. Maybe he's just so used to being up so high from experience that he's comfortable with sleeping on the job and not worrying about falling off the scafold.

Apparently it was nice and warm and not windy up there but even under those conditions would anyone be able to fall asleep?

Crazy man! Lucky too, I should think..

I do have a question though? How many "3rd banks" are there in order to have a "fifth third bank"? Seems like a bloody stupid name to me....

Can you imagine his face when he woke? And we thought we had a rough night, waking up hanging from a high rise building put top anything I could tell.

Glad the man is alright. He has some explaining to do though.

I guess the least amount would have to be 5 banks. No telling if there is a 6th.


Yeah he's pretty lucky he didn't fall out of the thing, I wonder how he was sleeping? Standing up or laying down?

I say fair play to the guy!

The world would be a better place if people slept when they should be working.

Kudos window washer guy!


EDIT- Me being a pleb, fixed it.

This is a bit confusing did you mean shouldn't?

Or are you trying to say that a job of that nature does not deserve to be called a job?

Darn, I meant when they should be working.

I'm so stoopid.
