The following letter is addressed to a roofer, an insurance company and describes the consequences of an ill-considered action:
"In response to your request for additional information, I would like to tell you this: If question 3 of the accident report I".. Unplanned action "as the cause of my accident given you asked me to describe this in more detail what I want to do that here I am by profession roofer. On the day of the accident I was working alone on the roof of a six-story new building. When I finished my work, I had about 250kg brick left over. Since I did not want to wear down the stairs, I decided to give it in a barrel on the outside of the building down permit, which was attached to a rope that ran over a pulley.

At the height of the third floor, I met again for the coming of the bottom barrel. This resulted in two broken ankles and abrasions on my legs and my abdomen. The collision with the buoy delayed my case, so that my injuries from falling down on the pile of bricks is low and that why I have only three vertebrae. I regret, however, to inform you that I, as I was there on the pile of bricks and the empty barrel six stories above me saw, once again lost my presence of mind, I let go of the rope ... "
