Riding the high seat

Riding the high seat

Spotted in Kortrijk Belgium last week, a young man riding a pallet suspended from a truck mounted aluminium crane.

The crane, owned by Meulebeke based roofing contractor Wim Vergote, was working on new homes and was almost fully extended with boom and jib and a single line to a suspended pallet fork carrying roofing materials and a human unloading person. Brave or foolhardy?

He does not seem in the least concerned as he admires the view, in fact he seems pretty happy with the fact that he is up there, so I presume it is not the first time he has done this.
