Yep, you betya.

This Summer, I couldn't get a job, so my Dad said he had some work for me. He is a fabricator / Welder / engineer dude, and there is a pharmacutical plant in my County that has closed for routine maintanance etc, and we have to do a lot of work.

So, I was busy working today, and my Dad walks into the workshop where I was cutting and polishing some pipes and valves, and tells me about an accident that just occurred 100-200 metres away from where I was working.
This guy was working on some pipes for a storage tank, but he coulnt reach what he had to cut. So he decides to climb up a few pipes to reach it, in doing so, using a valve handle as a footrest... the pipe should have been closed, de-commissioned and tagged... Jump a few buildings away, and this other fella is pumping 2,500 litres of powerful acid (not sure what type) at high pressure through the pipes, without knowing of the guy working on the pipes.

Guy 1 has just stepped on the handle. The handle turns down, releasing a torrrent of high-strength acid directly into his face. He falls from the pipes, and is dragged to an emergency shower, but it's too late. The acid completely burns his entire face and as for his eyelids... they were melted or "Fused" together. He was later rushed to the ICU of the nearest hospital.

Eventful day, in my opinion.. whatcha think?

That is awful . . .


I thought drugs were going to be involved but . . . damn.

imagine how much his dong hurts
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

the acid would've definitely melted the plastic or rubber used on the goggles

not necessarily, it depends on what kind of acid it is. there are acids that dissolve skin but not plastic.

Damn, he must have tripped out hard....

that sounds absolutely horrible.
I've got something in my front pocket for you.
Why don't you reach down in my pocket and see what it is?
Then grab onto it, it's just for you.
Give a little squeeze and say: "How do you do?"

He was wearing safety glasses according to site policy, but they were no match for this acid. I think it was Hydrochloric, but I'm not too sure.

R.I.P?


He lived , but he is off work for a while, as you would have to be after having a proper face melting.

And either way, it's still a barrier.
Where was this? Judging by your use of the Metric system, probably not the USA, but I'm sure there is some sort of work hazard administration that will go balls to the wall over this.

Poor f*cking guy.

There'll be a major health and safety overhaul probably. Which could be good or bad.. Do you get frequent accidents in the area TS?


No, not at all. The place is like Health & Safety HQ that produces Pharmacuticals on the side

The goggles... They do nothing!


Anyway, sounds like a fun day. Can't beat a bit of good old fashioned working practices. None of this airy fairy health and safety bollocks.

Almost as dangerous as one of my face melting solos

But this accident was less painful than your solos
