How do they do that??

I just watched a clip on a program called “how do they do that” and it was repairing HIGH VOLTAGE POWER LINES.  It was amazing to see a helicopter and one other person besides the pilot doing this crazy job.  The helicopter must hover attached to the power line whilst the other person moves from a platform to the lines and acts like a spider.  The electricity arks and sometimes the spiderman gets a shock!!  He must repair and add weights to the line and then get back onto the helicopter and unclasp the helicopter from the power lines.  The job takes a few minutes around 20 then the days work is done.   What a job but would you do it?  Not me as I don’t want to mess up and FRY.
