Sleepwalker Survives 8-Story Fall out of LES Window
You may have seen this story making the rounds…
Call it a miracle. A sleepwalking man plunged from the eighth-floor window of his girlfriend’s Lower East Side apartment this past Sunday morning, and survived with relatively minor injuries. The scaffolding below reportedly broke his fall. And bones in his body.
According to published reports, 35-year-old Randy Phothisane climbed out the window of the South Street apartment at around 5am Sunday morning, while still asleep, and tumbled from the ledge. The scaffolding currently in place onsite arguably saved his life. He woke up after the fall with a broken leg and ribs, as well as and other injuries to his torso.
It’s believed that sleeping pills Phothisane had ingested the night before played a role in the incident.
