Australian man survives nine-storey fall in his underwear

Australian man survives nine-storey fall in his underwear:

"PERTH, Australia - A 35-year-old man wearing only his underpants survived a 30-metre fall from his ninth-floor apartment after trying to walk to a neighbour's balcony while balancing on a plank, police said Tuesday. A garden gazebo broke the man's fall, and he was taken to a hospital in serious condition. Ros Weatherall, a spokeswoman for Western Australia state police, said rescue workers found the man, who was not immediately identified, wearing only his underpants. 'He was skylarking around, building planks across to his neighbour's place, when it happened,' she said. 'He was very lucky.'"


There are many things I would like to say about this.

1. Who puts planks between balconies and walks across them for fun?

2. Who puts planks between balconies and walks across them for fun in their underwear?

3. Who actually thinks the man who "broke his fall" by hitting a gazebo before the ground and is in critical condition... was LUCKY!?
