New Jersey Roofers Pull Co-Worker From Vat Of Acid

It's hard to know how far any of us would go to save a colleague's life, but it appears that four New Jersey roofers were willing to risk theirs after a co-worker fell through a factory roof and plunged into a vat of acid 40 feet below.

The workers rescued Martin Davis (pictured at left), a 44-year-old iron worker who was working on the roof of Swepco Tube, a manufacturing plant in northern New Jersey, when he tumbled into the vat Monday morning, The Record of Bergen County reports.
