Peeping Tom Accidentally Falls Off 10th Floor
Weird Asia News ^ | 6/8/08

Posted on 06/08/2008 2:33:16 PM PDT by LibWhacker

A 44 year old Hong Kong man accidentally fell off a 10th floor balcony while trying to video tape his next door neighbor showering.

The 29 story building was designed so that two units have their bathroom windows right next to each other. This made it easy for the man to climb over and peep on his neighbor.

The victim, a 28 year-old sales lady, was taking a shower when she noticed a strange hand holding a cell phone outside the bathroom window.

She screamed for help and saw the person outside climb back into the next room, which was a vacant apartment.

Her husband and other residents blocked the door entering the next door apartment and called the police.

The peeping tom, realizing his only way to escape was out the window, climbed out the window back onto the ledge.

Due to the dark and slippery conditions, the man lost his footing and fell 10 floors to the ground. Luckily he hit a tree branch which broke his fall a little.

He was found alive but critically injured with a broken rib puncturing his lung.

He was taken into custody and rushed to the hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Charge him with being a peeping tom and for base jumping without a permit.

If the police are feeling particularly ornery, maybe tack on a charge of littering while they are at it.

Charge him with unsuccessfully attempting a Darwin Award Stunt. Pretty hard to botch a ten story swan dive. Did he get to keep the pictures he captured? Was she attractive enough to warrant this photographic escapade?

The building used to have 30 floors, but that’s another story.

If this happened in America, you could bet that the apartment building owners would be in a Civil Suit by some lawyer representing the perp, defending why their building didn’t have a safety rail on the ledge or something....

The victim, a 28 year-old sales lady, ...

I wonder if this had been written by an American publication, would the victim still be identified as such.

Luckily he hit a tree branch which broke his fall a little.

Snicker.

Broke his fall a little? FWIR, it is suggested that if one attempts to commit suicide by jumping off a building, jump from at least 8 stories in height to put you in the "envelope" for success.

Can't remember if it mentioned a preferred landing material, but I doubt a tree branch was in the mix.

As for the windows, I imagine that it is the bathrooms that are placed back-to-back to save on plumbing runs, and it was the architect's desire for symmetry that dictated the window placement.
