"Why should I ask Websitement to help me

I am writing in response to your request for additional information. In block number 3
of the accident reporting form, I put "TRYING TO DO THE JOB ALONE" as the cause
of my accident. You said in your letter that I should explain more fully, and I trust that
the following details will be sufficient.
I am a bricklayer by trade. On the date the accident, I was working alone on the roof
of a new six-story building. When I completed my work, I discovered that I had about 500
pounds of brick left over. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower
them in a barrel by using a pulley which fortunately was attached to the
side of the
building, at the sixth floor.
Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out and
loaded the brick into it. Then I went back to the ground and untied the rope, holding it
tightly to insure a slow descent of the 500 pounds of brick. You will note in block number
eleven of the accident report form, that I weigh 135 pounds.
Due to my surprise of being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of
mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rather rapid rate
up the side of the building.
In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming down. This explains the
fractured skull and broken collarbone.
Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of
my right hand were pretty badly mangled by the pulley.
Fortunately, by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold
tightly to the rope in spite of my pain.
At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground, and the
bottom fell out of the barrel. Devoid of the weight of the bricks, the barrel now weighed
approximately fifty pounds.
I refer you again to my weight in block number eleven. As you might imagine, I began a
rapid descent down the side of the building,
In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the
two fractured ankles and the lacerations of my legs and lower body.
The encounter with the barrel slowed me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell onto
the pile of bricks and, fortunately, only three vertebrae were cracked.
I am sorry to report, however, that as I lay there on the bricks, in pain, unable to
stand, and watching the empty barrel six stories above me, I again lost my presence of
mind and I let go of the rope. The empty barrel weighed more than the rope, so it came
back down on me and broke both of my legs.
I hope I have furnished the information you require as to how the accident occurred.
