A Window Washer Falls 11 Stories, Lands on a Moving Car, and Survives
Remember this the next time you're watching an action movie, and you call B.S. when someone falls off a building and lives.
A window washer in San Francisco fell 11 stories on Friday, that's at least 110 feet, and landed directly on the roof of a moving car.
The car crumpled, broke his fall, and somehow he survived. Plus, because he landed on the back of the car, the driver didn't have a scratch on him.
The window washer was taken to the hospital where he's still in critical condition.
A physicist named Paul Doherty says the only reason the guy survived was because he landed perfectly on the moving car. Quote, "You'd have to spread out the impact over time, and the best way to do that is to hit something that crumples under you."
