A 15-year-old boy miraculously survived after leaping 20 storeys to escape taunts by his older brother for losing in a computer game.
The boy was taken to hospital pale but unscathed after landing on the awning of a shop on the ground floor of the Kowloon district residential block where he lives, Sing Tao newspaper reported today.
A fire brigade spokesman described the incident as a "miracle and lucky escape".
The former British colony is a dense urban city where the majority of its seven million inhabitants live in high-rise blocks.
