BUTTERWORTH - A man fell eight floors from a condominium and not only survived after crashing through the carpark roof, he then used his mobile phone to call his father!

The advertising worker had just bruises on his legs after falling from a condominium block in Taman Bagan Jermal, Bagan Ajam, on Sunday evening.

Residents rushed to his aid expecting the worst but were surprised to see him all well and were shocked to see him speaking on his mobile phone.

A resident who declined to be named said he was stunned by the man's miraculous escape from death.

He said he rushed to the carpark after hearing a loud thud.

"After falling from such a height, he could still make a call and tell his father what happened.

"He was crying and lying on the ground. An ambulance rushed him to the Seberang Jaya Hospital," said the resident.

Another resident said the man, who is from Kuala Lumpur, could be suffering from depression.

He said the man was renting a unit with his friend at the 10-storey condominium block.

North Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahman Ibrahim said the man was once referred to Selayang Hospital for treatment for a mental condition.
