Falling 23 Stories and Surviving? I'd Say He Did Impress Her!
In Siberia, a 16-year-old boy who set out to impress a girl climbed over a railing and swung from the handrails of a 23rd-floor balcony. It was impressive - and stupid as he ended up falling 230 feet! But what was really impressive - and miraculous - is that somehow -- partially because, authorities say, a parked car he landed on softened the blow -- he was conscious when emergency responders arrived and did not suffer life-threatening injuries! The damage includes only a bruised abdomen and lung, a tear in his liver and a broken shoulder. A very lucky man indeed. Also lucky was the owner of the car, who was not in it at the time.
