A dim idea that could have cost him his life. On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, a young man of 21 years climbed on the Ferris wheel of Antibes (Alpes-Maritimes) according to several local media. He made a heavy fall of about ten meters, and was transported to the Pasteur Hospital in Nice. He is seriously injured but his prognosis is not engaged, according to information from Le Figaro.
Open fracture of broken leg and ribs
It is 2:30 in the morning when the young man, accompanied by a friend, approaches the Ferris wheel of Antibes. Located on the port, its access is closed to the public at night. This did not prevent one of the two pedestrians from trying to climb on the attraction. A gesture that "is more like stupidity," according to a police source in Le Figaro.
According to the first elements of the investigation, the two men were heavily intoxicated at the time of the facts. The 21-year-old, who was seriously injured after falling, escaped with an open fracture of his leg and broken ribs.
