Icicles Falling from Transmission Tower Videos for Engineers
seems like every year we see videos posted of icicles falling from television station transmission towers,
crashing into vehicles in the parking lot. This one from
News Channel 12, in Jackson, Mississippi, stands out because it shows people actually running toward their cars
while the icicles are falling from a 491-meter high tower. They apparently are so concerned about damage to their
vehicles that they discount the potential for mortal harm if one of those gigantic icicles happened to hit them.
You can hear the people laughing as they run into harm's way. One day we'll see one of them in the annual list of
Darwin Award winners. Sad, but true.
