Sky Diver Stuck in Wires

A sky diver jumped off a 33-story building on Leninsky Prospekt in southwestern Moscow late Wednesday but was left suspended in the air after his parachute got caught in power lines, Interfax reported.

The adventurer, whose stunt was initially mistaken for a suicide attempt, sustained no harm. He was freed by rescuers and taken to a police precinct, where he faced a possible fine.
