Gadzooks.. This story certainly illustrates the dangers of changing lightbulbs.. Climbing Everest is dangerous but climbing a ladder to change a lightbulb..that can be lethal! Our condolences go out to all who knew and loved Marco Da Pozzo.

Man survives K2 climb only to die while fixing a light bulb at ski resort
In 2004, elite climber Marco Da Pozzo successfully climbed the world’s second highest mountain, K2. Recently, however, it was the act of changing a lightbulb that took his life.Marco was changing a bulb on the church roof of the Cortina D’Ampezzo ski resort in Italy when he lost his footing and slammed his body against the stone wall, causing life-ending injuries. He was wearing safety gear.

Father David Fiocco commented: “We were all looking upwards holding our hands and praying but it was in vain and now he is in the hands of Jesus”. Fellow mountaineer Franco Gaspari said: “It was a freak tragedy. He was an outstanding climber.”

Our condolences go out to all who knew and loved Marco Da Pozzo. He was 43-years-old.

Changing light bulbs is never a fun thing. But the guy in this video better hope he is putting in some extra long life bulbs! Check out this video to see What it’s like to change the light bulb on top of the Gateway Arch in downtown St. Louis MO.
