We swear this kind of thing only happens in movies. Falling two stories down and living to tell about it because you fell directly into an Aston Martin DB9 ? That’s straight out of James Bond, right?
For better or worse, the incident actually happened when 22-year old Jade Bates fell from a bedroom window on to the bonnet of the DB9 that was parked directly below it. Miraculously, Bates bounced off of the DB9’s bonnet - yeah, she bounced off of it! - and escaped with nothing more than a few bruises. Unbelievable!
According to reports, Bates was out partying with a couple of her friends at her boyfriend’s apartment in Aberdeen when she fell from a window ledge that she was sitting on. The friends who witnessed the accident all came to her aid while the boyfriend, a young chap named Jasvir Deo, immediately called 999 - that’s the UK’s version of 911 - requesting help. While Mr. Deo declined to comment on the accident, an associate painted a clearer picture of what exactly happened: “They were celebrating a friend’s birthday when it happened. The guys were all sitting in the kitchen and the girls were upstairs in the bedroom. All of a sudden there was a huge scream and Jazz looked out to see Jade lying on his car. He was frantic. It looked like she had been pushed for a start, but appears to have just been an accident. She’s very lucky to be alive.” She added: “The car saved her. If it wasn’t for the Aston Martin having such a long bonnet, she could have been paralyzed or dead.”
You don’t say, buddy. You don’t say.
