Tower Stories: Hanging on for dear life


    John Paleski, Owner of Subcarrier Communications and avid tower climber, was 250 feet in the air on a New Jersey tower, connected to a crane by ropes. Thinking that the job was done, the crane operator began retracting the crane. It began pulling at the top of the tower, causing the tower to coil. When Paleski called down to the crane operator that they were still on the tower, the crane operator pressed the release button.
