Peeping Tom Accidentally Falls Off 10th Floor
Posted on June 8, 2008
A 44 year old Hong Kong man accidentally fell off a 10th floor balcony while trying to video tape his next door neighbor showering.
The 29 story building was designed so that two units have their bathroom windows right next to each other. This made it easy for the man to climb over and peep on his neighbor.
The victim, a 28 year-old sales lady, was taking a shower when she noticed a strange hand holding a cell phone outside the bathroom window.
She screamed for help and saw the person outside climb back into the next room, which was a vacant apartment.
Her husband and other residents blocked the door entering the next door apartment and called the police.
The peeping tom, realizing his only way to escape was out the window, climbed out the window back onto the ledge.
Due to the dark and slippery conditions, the man lost his footing and fell 10 floors to the ground. Luckily he hit a tree branch which broke his fall a little.
He was found alive but critically injured with a broken rib puncturing his lung.
He was taken into custody and rushed to the hospital where he remains in critical condition.
