Teen falls from 17th-floor ledge onto air cushion in Singapore

A dramatic video shows a teen falling from a 17th-floor balcony in Singapore on March 1 and landing on an air pack that rescuers had placed below.

The video shows the teen sitting on a ledge outside an apartment window, with his legs dangling off the side. He then loses stability and plummets down, yelling as he falls, and lands on an inflated air cushion below.

Members of the Singapore Civil Defence Force then rush to recover him.

According to Singapore’s Mothership.sg news website, the SCDF said "the boy was immediately attended to by SCDF paramedics and was conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital by an SCDFambulance.”
