Woman falls out window, saved by pile of poop

A Chinese woman survived a plunge from a sixth-floor balcony thanks to a convenient pile of excrement which broke her fall.

The accident happened when the woman was hanging out laundry. "Workers happened to be emptying the building's septic tank, which had not been tended for a long time and had regularly blocked sewage pipes," the newspaper said.

"She probably stretched out too far and fell ... right on to a 7 inches/20 cm-thick heap of excrement."

The woman suffered only slight injuries, the newspaper said. Full article here.
