You Hang in There -- And Don't Go Anywhere: Napping Nutjob Almost Takes a Five-Story Header from the Top of a Building in China!
I can see heading up to the roof of a building to catch a few afternoon rays and a few Z's at the same time. But notice I said on the ROOF: Not on the damn ledge surrounding the roof!
But no such overabundant caution, apparently, for 28-year-old female Yan Yan Ch'eng of the Zhejiang province in China last week (link at bottom). This yawnin' Yan Yan was reportedly so tuckered out that she saw fit to sprawl out on a roof ledge to take a little "nap in the sun."
Being as that she was asleep up there, however, Yan Yan was far more prone to pesky sleep-time behaviors, such as the unconscious rollover. Or, as the Daily Mail put it, she became "a little too relaxed in the midday sun [and] almost rolled off the ledge."
So as fast as one can say "WHOOPS" in Mandarin, this sleepy strange brew was hanging on for dear life from the top of that ledge. But "luckily for the Chinese sunbather," she was able to draw attention to her predicament by "wailing" up a big storm. (Not shouting or yelling, mind you, but "wailing").
Yan Yan's wails reportedly garnered the attention of hundreds of onlookers below, and cops and firemen weren't far behind to yank this Drowsy Daphne up to safety. Cops say her only injury was a skinned knee -- that, and her afternoon nap was positively ruined that day!
