Schmidt’s daring feat garnered significant attention in 2015 when a video of him changing a light bulb at such an altitude went viral, amassing over a million views. While this might seem like a momentous occasion for many, for Schmidt, it was just another day on the job.
In a world filled with ordinary jobs, Kevin Schmidt stands out, literally rising above the rest, showcasing both his physical bravery and dedication to his work.
