Drunk Russian jumps twice from fifth-floor flat, escapes unharmedApril 8th, 2009 - 6:44 pm ICT by IANS
Moscow, April 8 (RIA Novosti) A 22-year-old Russian man suffered minor injuries after leaping out of a fifth-storey window twice following a drinking binge, Russia’s Life.ru news website reported Wednesday.
Together with two friends, the jumper, identified only as Alexei, drank three bottles of vodka. After the drinking session, his wife watched in horror as he opened the kitchen window and leapt out of their fifth-floor apartment.
“I did not realise what was happening at that moment,” the man said in an interview with Life.ru. “Now I can say just one thing - I was lucky.”
The terrified woman ran downstairs to see her husband getting up from the ground before heading back towards their apartment.
Before an ambulance arrived, Alexei leapt out of the window for a second time. He was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with minor concussion and scratches.
When the man sobered up and was told about his exploits, he said that he was quitting drinking.
