    Window Washer Falls Asleep on 20th Floor

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A window washer working on a downtown Nashville high-rise building apparently feel asleep on the job, authorities say.

    The man, whom fire officials did not immediately identify, was cleaning the glass on the 20th floor of the Fifth Third Bank building on Church Street Friday when several onlookers noticed he was not moving.

    The man came to after firefighters tugged on his ropes, then held up a sign from inside the window to get his attention. The worker lowered himself to the sidewalk, where he was examined by paramedics.

    Assistant Fire Chief Lee Bergeron said it appeared as if the man fell asleep, but added that he couldn't be certain.


    "I figured he had just either passed out or maybe he had fallen asleep," said onlooker Leroy Anderson, who said he had been watching the man for 30 minutes before fire engines arrived. "It's sunny and warm up there, and there's no wind."

    Nashville Fire Chief Henry Booker said the worker was taken to Baptist Hospital to be checked for a rapid heartbeat, but said he expected the man to be released.

    "It's unusual to fall asleep outside while on scaffolding that high up," Booker said.

    He probably has 10 children and it was the only place he could catch some shut eye.
