This photograph tugs at your heartstrings. Two engineers hug and cling to each other as fire and smoke creeps toward them. They both died after. According to news reports, one of them jumped off the turbine while the other succumbed to the fire. What makes this more heartbreaking is that the two engineers are just aged 19 and 21.
This accident happened in October of last year at a wind farm in Ooltgensplaat, Holland. A crew of four were conducting routine maintenance at the 67-meter high wind turbine when fire suddenly broke out. Two of the four people were able to escape while the other two got trapped.
