A boy has escaped without serious injuries despite falling 40ft from a rooftop because his fall was broken by his mate.
Admittedly, he didn’t have much of a choice in the matter given that his friend just plunged straight down onto his head from a great height, but you’d have to imagine that the falling friend owes him at least a couple of pints – well, as soon as they are old enough to have one.
Swapnil Jagre had just finished shinnying up a drainpipe to bring down a kite that had become trapped up there when he lost his balance. He fell three storeys towards the ground. Not many folks fall that far and don’t end up with some form of life-changing injury or worse.
Luckily for young Swapnil his mate had just walked over to pick up the kite that had fallen to the floor and managed to be in just the right place at exactly the right moment.
Miraculously, neither of them was badly hurt. The incredible moment was captured in its entirety by the CCTV cameras of a nearby building.
