Fallen Man Saved by a Nail!

An 85-year-old Chinese man fell out of his fifth floor window and would've plunged to his death had he not been saved by an errant nail:

The nail in the wall, between the fourth and fifth floors, snagged his clothing and held his weight until help arrived.

After 30 minutes hanging from the outside of the building in Zhengzhou city, Henan province, Zhao Jingzhi was rescued by firefighters.

I wish the picture were a little better.

For some reason this reminds me of the scene in "The Naked Gun" where Frank Dreben grabs onto a statue's wang to prevent himself from falling off a ledge.

This is so surreal.
Not being an American, it doesn't bother me so much, but the venom can't help your own mental state.

Try to let go of your hatred.

Actually, he'd probably sue the building owner for the pain and suffering caused by the gash the nail left in him, and causing him to endure the indignity of hanging on the side of the building...

...oh, and he'd sue the city for taking too long to rescue him...
