The guy must have ESP to jump twice with his back to the cable!

wow. That Yellow Jacket did an amazing couple of jumps and so quickly to the danger and with his back to it?? He really had his SA on there! The others guys who were facing it never saw it coming.

Wow! Amazing!

Why don't they have rods or something that come up out of the deck to protect crew and material from cables flopping about?

Then they would need something to protect them from tripping and falling on the rods.
