This is the moment a sleepwalking teenager survives a four-storey fall onto a car bonnet before hobbling across the street and running away.
According to local media, 16-year-old Riza Burg S. was napping in his fourth-floor home in the district of Sisli in the north-western Turkish province of Istanbul before falling onto the car while sleepwalking.
As he fell from four storeys, the teenager reportedly became entangled in power cables before landing on the car bonnet.

He then got to his feet and went to a neighbour’s house, entering the property through a window, according to local media.
The neighbours took him to hospital where he was reportedly diagnosed with several fractures, but luckily nothing life-threatening.
There have been no further updates on his condition or whether the authorities are looking into the incident.
In the CCTV footage, a falling body is seen crashing on the bonnet of a parked car as a power cable swings across the corner of the screen.
The teenager gingerly lowers himself onto the pavement before hobbling across the road and briefly looking over his shoulder.
