There is really no more to say. This incredulous story from The SMH (and yes, we did check the date for April 1st):
A Chinese woman survived a fall from a sixth-floor balcony after she landed on a large pile of excrement dug up by workers clearing a septic tank, state media said.
The unnamed woman was stretching to hang washing when she lost her balance and fell from the balcony at her home in the southern city of Nanjing yesterday, the semi-official China News Service quoted a local newspaper as saying.
The woman suffered only minor injuries after the 20cm heap cushioned her fall, the agency said.
Workers had been dredging the tank after complaints by local residents, it said.
Shanghaiist now expects that this will become CNN Asia’s lead story on China for the next week.
Here’s the original Chinese story link (via the Shanghai Daily).
