Nerves Of Steel In Dubai
Just don’t drop your squeegee! The nerves of steel required to be a window cleaner in Dubai
When he spotted a mark on his apartment window, this chap just had to pop out to give the glass a quick wipe with a squeegee.
Nothing odd about that – except that he lives 400ft up on the 34th floor of a tower block in Jumeirah Beach, Dubai.
He stepped out on to the narrow ledge and, holding the frame, stretched across to wipe away the annoying smudge.
Hell for leather: A window cleaner, circled, takes his life into his own hands on the 34th floor of a Jumeirah Beach apartment block
As he takes his life into his hands, at least he has the sense to hold on to the window frame, even if it is by his fingertips, as he goes about his task.
He was snapped making sure the windows were sparkling by a resident in a neighbouring apartment block.
A resident of a neighbouring block who took these pictures said: ‘The professional cleaners have safety harnesses and cradles and helmets. He had nothing.’
Stretching a point: The window cleaner uses a long-handled brush to reach the corners
