Gymnastic Skills Save Teen In 4th Floor Fall
<snip>

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (Reuters) - A British junior gymnastics team member fell from the fourth floor of a Ljubljana hotel but suffered only a broken ankle after putting his gymnastics skills into practice, the Slovenian press reported Tuesday.

"Probably my gymnastic knowledge and experience saved me," the Slovenske Novice newspaper quoted 17-year-old Steven Jehu as saying.

"There was a big window that could be opened. I leaned out over a metal bar, but the bar suddenly broke. I couldn't do anything. I fell," Jehu said.

The gymnast did a somersault while falling from the window, which was more than 33 feet from the ground, and braced himself for a regular gymnastic landing.

The Bulgarian judge deducts half a point.
