Man Who Fell Five Stories From Balcony In Stable Condition

A Florida man is in serious, but stable condition after falling five stories from a balcony.

Police in Boca Raton say the man was trying to show someone that he could climb from one story down to the next.

The accident occurred early Thursday when Zachary Nimhauser returned home with a friend to his building and found himself locked out of his apartment. Police say he went up to his friend's apartment, who lived one floor above him and managed to lower himself into his fourth-floor balcony from her apartment.

But Nimhauser then returned to the fifth floor to show his friend how he did it. He was again trying to lower himself to the fourth floor when he fell.

    I think this is pretty much the norm for Floridians. We went to Panama City for spring break maybe 3 years ago. Alot of the college students were doing the same thing there! It was crazy. The night guard told us that is wasn't unusual for someone to fall and get killed.
