Bizarre, from

A MAN was bruised but alive after a Saint Bernard dog thrown out a two-storey window landed on him as he was walking down the street in the southern-Polish city of Sosnowiec.
The 50kg dog was pushed out of the window by its drunken owner on Monday, police said.

“The dog had a soft landing because it fell on a man,” said police spokesman Grzegorz Wierzbicki.

“The dog escaped with just a few scratches.”

“The man was also more in a psychological state of shock than physically hurt.”
