Stuff isn't news people. If it's not in a more reputable publication, it probably didn't happen, and certainly not the way its reported to have happened.

I also object to people disguising links to Stuff.

Heres a tip, hover your mouse over any a link and you can see where its pointing, nothing is disguised, its done just to reduce clutter.

There's the potentially urban legend of the company H&S person demonstrating how strong the upper floor windows were by throwing himself at them.  Worked well until it didn't.

Obviously a bit of acting-up for the camera.  They do have a very sophisticated tool  (called a piece of 4x2 timber) to test the door pressure.   BTW the photo is just a reprint of a story some 12 - 18 months ago.
