A boy has escaped without injuries despite falling 40ft from a rooftop because his fall was broken by his mate.
Swapnil Jagre from Maharashtra, India, had just finished shinnying up a drainpipe to bring down a kite that had become trapped up there when he lost his balance. He fell three storeys towards the ground.
Luckily for young Swapnil his mate had just walked over to pick up the kite that had fallen to the floor and managed to be in just the right place at exactly the right moment. The pair escaped without any injuries
