A window washer who slipped and fell 11 storeys was saved from more serious harm when he landed on a moving car.
According to Buzzfeed, the worker was wearing a harness as he was setting up for work at the Sterling Bank & Trust building in downtown San Francisco when he suddenly lost his footing.
But incredibly the man survived the 11-storey drop after landing on a passing Toyota Camry – a small stroke of luck that probably saved his life, police later said.
‘I was actually looking in the direction of where the fellow fell off the building,’ said witness Sam Hartwell.
‘I saw something blue out of the corner of my eye falling and then I heard the loud thud and the shattering of the back of the car.’
Bystanders ran to the man’s aid, with some helping to direct traffic and others covering him with clothing.
According to Mr Hartwell, the man was breathing, though he was bleeding from both ears, and was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital in critical condition.
The motorist escaped harm.
