Now, That's One Tough Hombre

From At 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, Rhonda Arauco was in bed, just starting to fall asleep.
Suddenly, she heard a loud popping sound outside her third-floor window at the downtown Cascadian Apartments.
"Then I heard a masculine voice say, 'Ouch,'" Arauco said, "and it scared me because I thought someone was trying to come through the window."
She looked out and saw a naked man lying on top of an air-conditioning unit just outside her window.
She called police.
They were skeptical.
"Patrol was thinking this gal was probably nuts," said Sgt. Jim West with the Wenatchee Police Department.
But, sure enough, there was a naked man atop the air-conditioning unit.
Police were even more startled to learn that the man lived directly above Arauco on the sixth floor.
The man, who is blind, had somehow fallen out of his window.
"He's lucky to be alive," said Battalion Chief Glen Widener of the Wenatchee Fire Department. "If he would have fallen just a little to the left or right he would have hit a brick wall or some pipes that he could have impaled himself on."
To fall 3 floors and survives and just yells "ouch", is a miracle, or the guy is one very tough SOB.
And he will be ok, thankfully.
