Prof John's Stories: People die falling from roof

It was almost the end of winter. Workers were seen today clearing the ice that has been accumulated on top of the roof.


In gym, John told me that every year without fail, there will be people die falling from the roof top while clearing the snow in around Urasa, Muikamachi and Koide area.

Considering the small population in all these area combined, it's interesting to see the high death rate for such a unique kind of accident. He added on however, that the locals have been clearing snow from roof for ages.

However, the only difference is that now people fall into cement to their death, while the last time, people fall into soil and survived.
