Pole change gone wrong

While in the process of changing out a rotten deadend pole... a crew removed the sidewalk guy allowing room for new pole....they assumed it would hold while they set new pole....They heard the cracking etc of the old pole falling but couldn't do anything about it. No tagging or bracing was used to replace guy. Very Lucky the pole didn't fall on nearby house or customer watching from his deck. Blew 150 amp fuses. Also tub on pole didn't spill a drop of oil..... very very lucky no one Killed.. Guys take the time to rig...........and Never Never ASSUME...
