An unsuspecting family in Russia’s southern Krasnodar region received a surprise Thursday morning when a young skydiver made an emergency landing on the air conditioner outside their 13th-floor apartment.

The young man, said to be a student at a local flight school, was unharmed. 

Video of the incident quickly spread on social media and attracted local media attention. 

The apartment’s owners were reportedly unruffled by the unexpected incursion. While the parachute, which had become tangled with the air conditioner, continued to hang, they helped the young man climb inside and even treated him to breakfast.  

… we have a small favor to ask.
