I wish I had a pool on a balcony. :(
And all the injuries that come with it?
I wish I had a pool.
But I'm guessing Mr. Newell was in the pool when this happened?
Either that or underneath it..
Now imagine if that all had occurred with a kiddie pool...
Now that would have been hilarious.
Not necessarily. Not if their were kids involved.. that wouldn't be funny at all.
And God said, "Let there be stupid people"
He sure did. And they came in abundance.

Don't be so hasty giving out those awards
When I lived in Poland, I was once washing my clothes machine-style (which only happened 2 or 3 times while I was there) and I put the wet laundry into a dryer which had a dark gaping hole where the power button would have been. I figured it would probably start if I stuck my finger in there and hit some knob.
Don't. Ever. Do That.

What city did you live in?
When I was there basically every summer between the ages of 2 and 16, I was always in Gdansk, because family lived there and such.
It's a pity you have to die to win an *actual* darwin.
People survive some of the stupidest shit...
That's true. They should be able to have some award for those that survive the stupid things... Hmm... maybe an Evil Kneivel? *sp?*
did he die...the article didn't say
avoiding safety regulations..lol..people like him are the reasons we get the "DUH" warnings on everday items
No, I don't think he died.
I know! LOL!
Well...there was a fence on the balcony. Thus meeting the requirement. That's, like, almost logical...isn't it? Maybe? No? *siiiiigh* Sorry, Steven Newell, I tried to help...
lol. ;) I'm sure he appreciates it.
ok, being dumb, does this story not concern neone else that the balcony must have been pretty easy to knock down for a start? or am i missing how big this pool was? i am probably just being tres blonde lol. thanks random. x
Well, when it was filled it would have weighed over 2 tons... I mean, is any balcony equipped to take that?
it was a good idea! sucks it didnt work.
lol.. I would say that what happened proves it wasn't such a good idea, really.
Gee, what a bright guy. Really, just to avoid a safety fence? I hope nobody else was hurt from it.
I was thinking the same thing. It could be a really awful tragedy if someone had been walking under the balcony.
that reminds me of when we lived in an apartment complex a few yrs back and I didnt wanna out on our patio cause the elephants above us had a hot tub on theirs!
Where do all these stupid people come from!?!
He avoids the law " in order to avoid the safety requirement of building a fence around it" usualy gets what the law was trying to protect them from
still not a bad idea.... pool balcony =o
LOL! I think its a very bad idea given the results.
Oh man. I'd give him one. I reeeeally would. lol. Maybe I'm too lenient.
