Man threw himself out with Xmas tree

A German man threw himself out of a third story window along with a Christmas tree during a late-night attempt to take down his festive decorations.
The man fell 22 feet after he lost his balance. Unfortunately, the tree did not break the victim's fall.
"There's a TV advert showing people having fun throwing their old Christmas trees out the window," said police spokesman Willy Thevessen. "But you're not supposed to jump with them."
The man was taken to hospital with severe head injuries after eyewitnesses saw him fall.
