Guy Falls Off an 11th Story Balcony, Lands in a Shallow Pool and Survives
38-year-old Mark Hefley was putting some new hardwood flooring in a condo on the 11th story of a condo in Panama City Beach last week. Then he went out on the balcony to stretch his back on the railing.

Mark was completely sober at the time, he just slipped.
