Cleaner survives fall, impaling
by UPI

BRAMPTON, Ontario - A Brampton, Canada, apartment cleaner survived a fall of four floors and impalement on a spiked fence.

The cleaner, identified only as Andre, fell out of a window while cleaning it Sunday onto the fence, the Toronto Star reported Tuesday.

Esron Duncan, a security supervisor, was attracted to the scene by witnesses.

"I just did what I had to do. I held him up until help arrived," Duncan said.

"He was conscious and when I asked if he was in pain, he said he was and that he couldn't move. I lifted his shirt and I could see two of the spikes were in his side.

"I had to hold him up to take the pressure (of his weight) off. I never stopped holding him up," Duncan said.

Police said Andre was taken to Sunnybrook Hospital and was moved out of the intensive care unit on Monday.
