It must be a day for whacky news!
You shouldn’t laugh at the misfortune of others, but read this. It’s difficult to tell if this man would have been in serious danger if his trousers hadn’t save him from plummeting to the ground but I suspect that would have been the case, so I’m stifling my sniggers.
You do have to say that if this had been in a TV comedy you’d have put it in the category of too ludicrous to be believable. It looks contrived, but life as always proves it’s stranger than fiction.
