Man karate kicks elevator, falls down shaft

24-year-old man suffers broken leg after fall

HANGZHOU, CHINA – A Chinese man is lucky to be alive after trying to look tough against an elevator door.

In surveillance video, the drunk man is seen in a shoving match with two others outside a Hangzhou, China karaoke bar.  The man then decides to channel his anger elsewhere by giving the elevator a swift karate kick.

When the man, identified only as Yang by Yahoo! News, goes back at the elevator, he falls through the broken door and down the shaft.

In all, Yang fell four floors, surviving with just a broken leg.

Yahoo! says Yang's drunken escapade occured after a night of karaoke 

No word on if Yang performed the Tom Petty classic 'Free Fallin'" before he went, you know, free falling.
