Woman Who Fell Through Sidewalk Says Being Overweight Saved Her Life

Well, there's gotta be an upside to weighing 400 pounds.

And this lady says a thinner person would have been killed by the fall. See: "Overweight Woman Falls Into Upper East Side Sidewalk."

A six foot drop is definitely a guaranteed killer …

According to reports the woman had just stepped backwards to take shelter the rain under an awning when the four foot by six foot slab of concrete gave way. Inspectors with the Department of Buildings determined that defective steel doors and a loose staircase were responsible for the sidewalk collapse. There is some stir about her weight. Assumptions of her weight causing the collapse are possibly poorly misguided.
