Well I’ll be. A woman in Buenos Aires had had enough with life so jumped off a 23rd floor hotel balcony (some 328ft) . Fortunately a taxi roof broke her fall (and her hips and ribs) but she is going to be OK, not happy, but OK. Doctors say the fact she landed in the seated position saved her life. Hmm, that will be one bruised bum. Meanwhile the taxi driver must be thanking his lucky stars he saw a policeman looking up, prompting him to get out of the car, or he would have been squashed.

Geez, he’s lucky the reptile didn’t pull a gun on him….
Nothing like a suicidal, sword wielding man to get the heart rate pumping. It all started when police were called to a Boston apartment and tried to enter. While the cops were pounding the door, the man inside jumped through a closed third-floor window, bounced off an awning, slammed into the ground and ran off. Ta-da. Back up was called and some 20 cops chased after him . At some stage he spun around and drew a sword then charged the police shouting “Shoot me! Kill me!”. Hats off to the police, who restrained from pulling triggers while Sgt. Thomas Teahan snuck up from behind and tackled him.
