Saved By Shit!

Chinese Woman Falls 6 Stories, saved by pile of excrement1

I’m not convinced how true this is, but according to this article, a woman was hanging laundry from the sixth story of a building in China and fell. They happened to be cleaning the building’s septic system when she fell, so she landed in the crap. I wonder if she was thinking “oh shit!” when she hit the pile of shit.

Given the choice between landing on old crap from a septic system that hadn’t been tended to in a while and had been blocking sewer pipes or concrete, I really think I’d chosen the concrete. The shit couldn’t have been a pleasant experience.
