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?
