Woman Falls 60 Feet And Lands on Bed in Department Store

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A woman in Manchester fell 60 feet from a balcony in a department store before landing on a bed that cushioned her fall.

Shoppers at a John Lewis in Cheadle reported hearing screams as the woman, 60, plummeted from the glass balcony near the store`s escalator and landed on a bed that broke her fall.

Paramedics tended to minor injuries to her hip and spine before taking her to the hospital where she is said to be in stable condition."


If a senior citizens falls from her bed she`s likely to suffer a dislocated shoulder or a broken hip, it`s a miracle this old woman survived falling 60 feet, even if she did have the good fortune to land on a bed.

The elderly shopper suffered only minor injuries and she won`t need extended care from her physicians, but I`m sure she will keep her lawyers busy for the next few weeks and months suing the department store.

When her lawsuit is settled she will be able to afford the most expensive bed in the John Lewis department store.
