Sometimes no matter what one does to run a business safely, someone deliberately breaks the rules and gets hurt. Consider this. The two men had no right to be present in the area nor any business that would grant them access. Yet, they were there and the hotel has a PR problem on its hands. It's frustrating for management to have to deal with the Boob Factor, and it is a burden on industry in general. Look at warning signs attached to a ladder, for example. One wonders when and where personal responsibility takes over in accidents. Chances are that no lawsuit will be filed for negligence against the hotel, but the hotel can't be sure. Hence, it has to deal with the incident as if it will become an issue. There are many PR challenges a hotel has to consider in the ordinary course of business. It doesn't need this.
