(Updated 10:37am 3rd July 2012)
A man has had a miraculous escape after plunging fifteen feet onto a concrete pavement in Newquay.
The twenty-three year old wound up with a fractured wrist after climing safety railings on a night out.
It happened at a bar in the town in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
In the video, below, horrified onlookers gather while a passerby rushes to his aid.
Inspector Ian Drummond-Smith from the resort's police said, "The incident was captured on CCTV and the 23 year old local man concerned, who has no memory of the incident, has agreed to the release of the footage as a warning to others not to climb safety railings.
"Although he suffered an injury to his wrist, he is fortunate not to be more badly hurt. Behaviour like this is not unique to Newquay and across the UK people take dangerous risks. I hope this footage will make people stop and think before they put themselves in unnecessary danger."
It comes as Newquay begins its annual crackdown on drinking and antisocial behaviour in the town, adding extra night time patrols.10:37am 3rd July 2012
