Womens Survives 23 Story Fall
An Argentine woman who jumped from the 23rd floor of a luxury hotel in Buenos Aires has survived after a taxi broke her fall.
The 33 year old is now in a hospital intensive care unit after being operated on for multiple injuries, including internal bleeding and broken hips and ribs.
Officials said she had a lung, a kidney and her spleen removed.
Reports in Argentina quoted witnesses as saying the woman ordered a coffee in a restaurant, near the top of the hotel, before taking off her shoes to climb over a safety barrier.
The taxi driver got out of his parked vehicle and ran for safety when he saw a policeman looking up at the woman, the country’s state news agency Telam said.
