(Feb. 12, 2016) – A woman plunged 60 feet after falling off a balcony at a store in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, England.
But she landed in a good spot—right on a display mattress that may have saved her life.
Police and emergency medical crews arrived at the John Lewis department store Monday afternoon after the 60-year-old woman fell, according to Sky News. It happened by the glass balconies near the escalators.
Greater Manchester police said the woman landed on a bed and suffered hip and spine injuries. Police said her injuries were not considered serious.
A spokesman said the store is reviewing security footage of the accident and is cooperating with the investigation.
