Drones at work:Drone shoots mechanical climbing tower and goes viral on YouTube
For Kevin Schmidt there is nothing strange about climbing a tower over 1500 meters to change a light bulb.
He has climbed hundreds of towers over the past 8 years, in several states, sometimes with winds of 60 KM / H. This is his job at Sioux Falls Tower and Communications.
For the rest of the world, Schmidt’s daily life is anything but normal. “Sometimes my friends do not believe I do that,” says Schmidt. “They get scared just by climbing on the roof of the house”
That’s exactly why an incredible video (shot with drone) of him climbing a giant TV tower has become viral, attracting the attention of CNN, Daily Mail of London and having more than 1 million views on Youtube.
