And you thought YOU were having a bad day?

It could get worse:
A patient at George Washington University Hospital fell from a fifth-story ledge overlooking New Hampshire Avenue in Northwest Washington yesterday afternoon after threatening to jump for several hours, police said.
The man climbed onto the ledge about 12:15 p.m. and for four hours paced and peered at the ground. He fell just before 4:10 p.m. after trying to climb down. The man lost his footing as he tried to move down the building and briefly hung off the ledge by only his hands before falling feet first.
His body partially hit the concrete and a large inflatable air mattress police had set up while trying to coax him down, police said. . . .
The man, whose name was not immediately released by police, was still breathing at the scene, readmitted to the hospital and listed in critical condition. . . .
The man had been taken to the hospital yesterday after being involved in a car accident. (Emphasis added.)
