Bubble Wrap Saves A Man's Life
"Emergency responders in Boston said a construction worker who fell 30 feet was spared serious injury when he landed on bubble wrap.
A spokesman for the Boston Fire Department said the 38-year-old worker fell 30 feet off a building and landed in a pile of bubble wrap taken from the construction site's scaffolding."
Bubble Wrap is a marvelous invention that protects all kinds of products during the shipping and handling process.
But who knew that Bubble Wrap would spare a construction worker who fell 30 feet from serious injury.
It's a miracle that the construction worker landed on a pile of bubble wrap, and it's an even greater miracle that passerby hadn't popped the air bubbles in the Bubble Wrap.
Whenever I buy merchandise that's wrapped in Bubble Wrap I pop the air bubbles before I examine my new purchase. A big pile of Bubble Wrap isn't going to stay unpopped for too long, that construction worker is fortunate to be alive.
Bubble Wrap, one of humankind's greatest inventions, right up there with the invention of the wheel and the Internet.
