Durban - A man fell from the second storey of a Durban block of flats after losing his footing during a smoke break on Friday, paramedics said.
“He is in a stable condition at the moment and is very lucky,” ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks told News24.
The man in his early thirties usually took smoke breaks every half an hour at his home in Overport in Durban. His father heard the fall and called paramedics.
He was found with a broken leg. Neck and back injuries were suspected due to the height of the fall, and he was taken to the hospital for further medical care.
