Karlsruhe (dpa/lsw) - The nocturnal trip to a rainy roof ended for a 23-year-old with several broken bones and a head laceration - and the whole thing could have ended even worse. The man slipped shortly after 1 a.m. in Karlsruhe and, according to the police, fell around 20 meters. A net stretched in the inner courtyard and a corrugated iron roof would have slowed down the fall. A police spokesman could not say why the net is stretched there.
The alarmed fire brigade got two companions of the 23-year-old with a turntable ladder from the roof. According to the information, the three men had looked too deep into the glass. It was initially unclear how they came up with the idea of climbing onto the roof of an apartment building.
