A resident of Russia's far eastern city of Vladivostok survived a fall from the 20th storey of a residential building, a police spokesman said Tuesday


The man was apparently saved by a car roof, which broke his fall.
"The man leaned out of a window to have a smoke late at night, but fell out. He survived because he fell on the roof of a parked SUV," he said.
