"People Will Die" in the Cell Tower Boom

By Safety Man

from North Carolina

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Cell Tower Deaths (Newsmagazine #3) DVD:

This story is a classic example of what happens when the will to enforce safety just isn't there, and the quote at the end that "people will die" says it all. We know there is a boom to build more towers quicker with ill-trained employees who just want a steady job, even at $10.00 an hour and even if it's dangerous. We can stop this madness and I applaud Frontline for this story. As Americans, we have to decide if safety is truly important to us, which makes us different from those countries who don't seem to care. And if cell tower safety isn't important, what's next down the line that will eventually catch up to us: airline pilot saftey, bridge construction safety, car safety? We have to realize that one day it could be our son, our daughter, our father, or some other person we cared about who died and we will ask ourselves why this predictable event was allowed to happen, and why we didn't do more to stop it. People will die, and that's a given.
