Man miraculously survives 10th floor fall

The emergency services were called after startled neighbours discovered the man dangling precariously outside their eighth floor window.



Once on the scene rescuers quickly secured the elderly man, who was by now also clinging on with both his hands, by attaching rope to his outstretched leg.

The man, who could be forgiven for holding on, had to be persuaded to let go before the rescue worker who clambered out to save him was able to haul him to safety.

The elderly man was treated in hospital but remarkably suffered only a few minor scrapes, according to local press reports.
