Woman Falls 50 Feet While Sleepwalking….And Survives!
Is there a sleepwalker in your family? I used to sleepwalk quite regularly as a child. It got so frequent that my parents installed extra locks because I once sleepwalked right out the side door. I grew up on 3rd Street in Saint Paul where buses stopped on the corner just about every 10-15 minutes, so you can see the anxiety my parents faced.
Here's a sleepwalking story for you.
From the Daily Mirror: when you hear that someone fell 50 feet from a window onto concrete and SURVIVED, you want to know how. And this woman has an answer.
24-year-old Amy Wigfull of South Yorkshire, England was on vacation in Spain last month, and ended up sleepwalking in her hotel room. And somehow she opened the window, and fell 50 feet . . . straight down onto the concrete.
And she says she survived because she never woke up.
Quote, "If I had woken up as I was falling I would have been dead. But because I was still asleep, my body was in a relaxed state when I hit . . . if I had been awake and tense the injuries would've been catastrophic."
Amy did need several surgeries . . . but she was out of the hospital in just eight days and she's already walking again. She still needs crutches, but she's hoping to be walking without them by September. (Daily Mirror)
Lucky lady, yes?
