Couple Died ‘After Window They Had Xes Against Broke’

Recommended Posts

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4988091/couple-died-having-sex-against-window-which-broke.html

A COUPLE are believed to have fallen to their deaths when a window they were having sex against gave way, say reports.

..

The man and woman are thought to have fallen out of an apartment in the city of Wuhan, central China.

Local sites suggested windows in the building were of poor quality.

I wonder how old the building was and how many floors up they where?

Shades of this classic example of natural selection...

Garry Hoy (1955 – 9 July 1993) was a lawyer for the law firm of Holden Day Wilson in Toronto. He is best known for the circumstances of his death; in an attempt to prove to a group of prospective articling students that the glass in the Toronto-Dominion Centre was unbreakable, he threw himself through a glass wall on the 24th story and fell to his death after the window frame gave way.[1][2] He had apparently performed this stunt many times in the past, having previously bounced harmlessly off the glass. The event occurred in a small boardroom adjacent to a boardroom where a reception was being held for new articling students. Hoy was a noted and respected corporate and securities law specialist in Toronto. He was a professional engineer, having completed his engineering degree before studying law. He was a highly respected philanthropic member of the Toronto Asian community.

In the words of Toronto Police Service Detective Mike Stowell:

"At this Friday night party, Mr. Hoy did it again and bounced off the glass the first time. However, he did it a second time and this time crashed right through the middle of the glass."

I wonder if he repeatedly picked the same window to demonstrate on? It certainly has the irony factor in that unbreakable glass proved to be quite the opposite.

The glass was indeed unbreakable - the frame gave away.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Chinese example were repeated here with the couple going through the wall.

A footballing acquaintance bought a very expensive apartment in what was previously a school building. He first realised he might have made a mistake when he heard one of his neighbours stirring a cup of coffee. :o

Very good argument for Velux windows..

It's a very good argument for not having intercourse against a window high up in a block of flats :ph34r:

They should have installed the windows using Juvenal's Noisy Farting Putty. I recommend it, especially when you have sex against the windows.

How did he hear it was coffee?

Presumably his neighbour was Sarah Greene and he could hear her 'magicking the beans'...

XYY
