Drunk Russian unharmed after leaping out of window twice

MOSCOW, April 8 (RIA Novosti) - A 22-year-old Russian man suffered minor injuries after leaping out of a fifth-storey window twice following a drinking binge, Russia's Life.ru news website reported on Wednesday.

Together with two friends the jumper, known as Alexei, drank three bottles of vodka. After the drinking session, his wife Yekaterina watched in horror as he opened the kitchen window and leapt out of their fifth-floor apartment.

"I did not realize what was happening at that moment," the man said in an interview with Life.ru. "Now I can say just one thing - I was lucky."

The terrified woman ran downstairs to see her husband getting up from the ground before heading back towards their apartment.

Before an ambulance arrived, Alexei leapt out of the window for a second time.

The jumper was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with minor concussion and scratches. He is currently receiving out-patient treatment.

When the man sobered up from his binge drinking session and was told about his exploits, he said he was quitting drinking.
