The young nurse who survived when a car cushioned her fall from a second-floor window has lived to see the jilted ex who pushed her jailed for her attempted murder.
The Antalya 3rd High Criminal Court in Antalya, Turkey, sentenced Aytac Suleyman Dasbacak to 10 years in jail for “attempting to deliberately kill” Safiye Nur Gurbuz.
The court also handed him a sentence of two years and six months for the crime of ‘deprivation of liberty’.
The incident, which took place on 22nd May last year, saw Safiye, aged 24 at the time, fall from the second-floor window of an apartment block in Antalya.
She landed on top of a parked car, surviving, but sustaining a broken back, broken hand and broken leg in the fall – along with a lengthy stay in hospital.
She said at the time: “He didn’t know there was a car downstairs when he pushed me out the window. If I had fallen on the concrete, not on a car, I would be dead now.”
Aytac Suleyman Dasbudak, aged 32 at the time, claimed to cops that he had also fallen out of the window along with the young woman.
However, suspicions were raised when the imprint of only one body was found on the vehicle, and Aytac swiftly found himself in handcuffs.
Safiye would go on to reveal that she had been in a relationship with the suspect for 10 months, but had dumped him shortly before the incident.
She said she left him after he became increasingly jealous and violent.
It was when she was en route to work that Aytac showed up unannounced and forced her into his car and back to his apartment.
According to reports, he beat her up inside the flat and it was when she opened the window to cry for help that he pushed her out – apparently to shut her up.
Safiye was nervous at first, as Aytac was only charged with ‘deliberate injury’ and ‘deprivation of liberty’ – with the former carrying a lighter sentence than ‘attempted deliberate murder’.
However, on the complainant’s lawyer’s request, the case was referred by the Antalya 30th Criminal Court of First Instance to the Antalya 3rd High Criminal Court, which held the hearing at which the defendant was sentenced last week.
