Why you should watch your step in the shower: You might slip, fall out the bathroom window and land at the bottom of a 15-foot shaft.
That's what happened to a San Diego woman this week when she lost her balance in the shower of her second-floor apartment and fell out an open 2-by-3-foot window next to the bathtub, U-T San Diego reported. The woman, identified only as in her 50s, fell to the bottom of a light shaft (pictured above), some six to eight feet below ground level.
"It was an odd or freakish type of accident," San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Battalion Chief David Connor told U-T San Diego.
My wife tells me, "I'm going to jump in the shower." To which I always reply, "Be careful." This, THIS is why.
