Dumbass falls 16 stories, lives to tell the tale


Hanson recalls drinking with his pals at a couple of bars in St. Paul before going back to the Minneapolis Hyatt Regency. They stopped by a darts tournament at the hotel before heading to their rooms in the early morning hours.

“Then we come back off the elevator and that’s when, for whatever reason … I decided to take off running,” Hanson said. “I don’t know why I took off running or what really led up to it, but — I did.”

Sprinting down the hallway alone, he said he was confused by the reflection on the window pane at the end. With a crash, the 275-pound former prep football player and wrestler broke through a double-paned window with a safety bar.
