Man's survival 'miracle'
June 3, 2004

An elderly Taiwanese man who plummeted 12 storeys to the ground after he fell from his apartment balcony while changing a lightbulb survived with only minor bruises.

Chang Shih-chi, 68, told cable network CTiTV yesterday he had overbalanced after suffering an electric shock, but his fall to earth was broken as he bounced off a canvas awning, electric wiring and a parked car.

"The patient had fallen from the 12th floor to the ground without suffering major injuries. This is a miracle," said the doctor who treated Chang.

TV footage showed Chang walking around the hospital ward in Taichung, central Taiwan, without any assistance.
