Russian woman survives fall from 11th floor-TV

Written by: Staff

MOSCOW, Mar 22 (Reuters) A Russian woman fell 35 metres (114 ft) from the eleventh floor of her apartment building and survived, Russia's Channel One television reported yesterday.

The 21-year-old woman, who was not named, is in hospital being treated for concussion, bruises and a displaced spine. Doctors say she should make a full recovery.

''I have been working for 36 years and this is the first time we have had a patient who has been brought into the hospital after falling from the eleventh floor,'' Dr Viktor Razin told the television station.

Doctors said a thick covering of snow broke the woman's fall, and her body was relaxed because she was not fully conscious at the moment of impact. The incident happened in the Ural Mountains region of Bashkortostan.
