Man Tries To Leap From Neighbors Balcony To Own After Lock Out | C & S Locksmiths
July 27, 2016
A Florida man was seriously injured after attempting to jump from his neighbor’s fourth story balcony to his own after locking himself out of his apartment.
Ralph Wolff, aged 69 years old, drastically miscalculated the risks of jumping from one balcony to another as the result ended in Wolff falling four stories to the ground below. Although reports state that none of Wolff’s injuries are life threatening he was seriously injured and lucky to be alive.
Flagler County Sherriff’s Office Spokesperson Jim Troiano commented on the incident stating it was a “terrible decision” and that "There certainly were other options available to him that were less dangerous. This certainly could have had much more tragic consequences.". Toriano went on to advise any residents that are locked out of their homes to contact the proper channels to gain access.
It is most recommended to contact either your property manager or a licensed locksmith to regain entry after being locked out. It is never recommended to take leap from four stories high in an attempt to get back into your home. If you are located in Tucson and in need of a locksmith contact the licensed, bonded, and insured lock and security experts at C & S Lock & Security.
