This is the moment a homeowner trying their hand at DIY drops a window 19 floors before it hits an unsuspecting pedestrian on the head and he survived.

The unnamed victim has survived the freak accident and is not in any life-threatening condition, according to police in the county of Yuncheng, which is in Heze City in East China’s Shandong Province.

A CCTV camera at the Zhongyang Xuefu Residential Area shows the pedestrian walking next to the high-rise tower while carrying his shopping on 17th June.

He is suddenly struck from above by the window, which knocks him out before crashing onto the ground.

The man survived the accident and was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The authorities say the window – made of aluminium alloy – was purchased by the homeowner who tried to install it himself.

While handling the window on the 19th floor, he accidentally dropped it, hitting the pedestrian on the head.

The freak accident comes just days after a five-year-old in China’s southern Guangdong Province was struck by a loose window which came off its hinges and plunged 20 storeys.
