    69-year-old woman survives 9-story fall

    May 12, 2005  |  Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- A 69-year-old woman who survived a nine-story fall from a condominium tower when she landed on canvas awning told rescuers she became dizzy after staying up all night packing for her return trip north.

    Gloria Jummati was cleaning her ninth-floor balcony Wednesday morning when she fell over the 42-inch railing. The part-time Florida resident was preparing to head back to the Chicago area with her husband.

    “She's very, very lucky,” police spokesman Andy Pallen said. “She'd better go buy a lottery ticket.”

    Rescuers said she was alert when they arrived, complaining only of a shoulder injury. She remained hospitalized Thursday at Broward General Medical Center.

    “Angels floated her down -- that was pretty much all we could come up with,” Fire-Rescue Lt. Shari Marshall said.

    How is it miraculous?
    She landed on a canvas awning.
    Canvas, thats what the firefighters use to catch jumpers when shit is on fire and people are jumping out of windows and shit to beat the heat.

    And her being 69 has nothing to do with shit, ive met some old people who are pretty tough for their age.
    Eating glass and shit, son.

    anybody see the clip of the crack head that jumped a bunch stories to avoid getting arrested. Landed, survived, got up and ran about 10 feet before collapsing under a bag of crackie broken bones? I think it was on a faces of death video. Could he have been so high that the drugs kept his heart beating?
