Russian drunkard jumps out of five storey window twice
April 14, 2009 12:00am
A Russian man survived after guzzling three bottles of vodka before leaping from a fifth floor balcony - twice.
Moscow man Alexei Roskov says he jumped the second time because he couldn't stand anymore of his wife's nagging after the first time.
His wife Yekaterina watched in horror as her sozzled husband opened the kitchen window of their Moscow apartment, and dived out.
Astonishingly 22-year-old Muscovite survived - staggering back upstairs with barely a scratch after the 15m fall.
But while his wife called for an ambulance and began to scold him, he decided to jump again.
Paramedics treated Mr Roskov for minor cuts and bruises before releasing him.
Mr Roskov said he was now teetotal after giving up drinking, and added: "Now I can say just one thing - I was very lucky.
"I have no idea why I jumped the first time but when I came back up and I heard my wife screaming angrily at me I thought it was best if I left the room again - out of the window."
I'll bet the guy had one hell of a hangover! I know I would...
Coffee inside again, away from the heat.
