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.
Guess we can be pretty sure he won’t try that again.
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.
This thread needs pictures / sarc
Yes, this clown will be doing it again when he heals up
Guy was damn lucky that tree was there to break his fall.
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?
Hong Kong? Could the lady in the shower have been named Fay Wray?
The building used to have 30 floors, but that’s another story.
......there was no immediate word on the former presidents condition
L O L.
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....

LOL, only Belushi could play to the camera like that and get away with it...and we all remember what caused *him* to (ahem) “lose his balance” and fall, ;)
Let’s see the picture. Can’t really know if it was worth it or not! ;)
So..bill clinton was in Hong Kong recently..
The perp got what was coming to him in spades.
Well that must be pretty embassassing.
I wonder if anybody was holding his Tsingtao?
I wonder if HE was holding his Tsingtao?
The Chinese word for John Thomas.
"I will remind you that this is not the first time I have fallen, and probably not the last."
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.
