Teen clings to life after apartment accident

Date Posted: 2006-09-10

A youngster is hospitalized, unconscious, after falling from a building rooftop while playing with a friend.

The Sunday accident in Nanjo City’s Chimon area occurred when the boys were trying to climb to a water tank atop the two-story apartment building’s roof. Officials say the 14-year-old victim had climbed the plastic water pipe, which gave way under his weight. He plunged from the second floor, down to the main door’s eaves, then on to the asphalt roadway.

Doctors say the teen is unconscious, suffering subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Police say the victim and two other students were involved in the incident, including one who lived in the apartment building. They say the victim fell six meters after the plastic water pipe and its plastic fasteners connecting it to the roof broke.
