NOVO-PEREDELKINO, Russia — He was feeling no pain.
A blind drunk Russian man miraculously survived a nine-story fall out a window and even managed to summon police for help after he landed, but was so inebriated when they got there that he forgot why he had called.
Russia’s 360 TV reported that the 37-year-old man was alone when he tumbled out of his bedroom window late on Sunday in a Moscow suburb. But not only was he not killed in the fall, he remained conscious and was able to call the authorities and ask for an ambulance.
He somehow even managed to get back to his apartment and when the cops showed, he couldn’t remember what had happened or why he needed help.
Eventually, he remembered the fall, so he was taken to a local hospital where doctors discovered he’d only suffered cuts and bruises.
Russia’s state-run news wire reported that a similar incident occurred in Kemerovo the day before, where a woman survived a fall from a five-story window, although she suffered a fractured spine and several other broken bones.
