Taxi saves woman in 330ft plunge; WORLDBULLETINS.

A WOMAN survived after throwing herself from the 23rd storey of a Buenos Aires hotel when a waiting taxi broke her fall.

She landed in a sitting position on its roof just after the driver got out. The impact deeply dented its roof and shattered the vehicle's windscreen.

The 30-year-old woman suffered multiple injuries and is being treated in hospital.

The taxi driver said he saw a policeman looking up and that prompted him to get out just before the driver's side of the car was smashed by the woman's body.

Alberto Crescenti, the director of Argentina's Emergency Medical System, estimated that the woman fell nearly 330ft.
