The last time Londonist complained about noise from the neighbours it led to a three year stand off, increasing musical ampage and ultimately a bloody nose. On the other end of the scale some people have all the luck. Orlando Fonseca leaned out of his window to complain about the noise from above and caught a falling girl:
He leant out of his second floor window to complain, but as he did so Miss Koeon fell out head-first.
What should have been a three storey drop head first onto concrete was turned into a startled Korean fashion design student sat in Orlando’s flat. This is maybe our favourite story of the year so far.
“I was watching my team play Iran in the World Cup,” said Mr Fonseca, of Wandsworth, south-west London. “Upstairs the woman was shouting and dancing and just making lots and lots of noise. “I leant out of the bedroom window and there was a gang of people watching her in the window. She was dancing away on the window sill. Next the glass smashed and she fell. I caught her with my arm and pulled her in. “She was not heavy but you can see a big bruise on my arm. She said ‘sorry’ to me but was still smiling.”
There’s got to be a romantic comedy in there somewhere…
