A teen driver in San Antonio, Texas was doing donuts in the parking lot before he took a near-death nosedive off the 5th floor of a parking garage. According to HLN, the 19-year-old driver miraculously survived the fall and was rushed to the hospital. He is now in stable conditions.

KENS reports the teen busted through the concrete of the parking garage and the only thing that saved him upon impact was his seat belt. San Antonio officials say the end result could have been worse for the driver and pedestrians.

Basically, there are two lessons here, both of which should be pretty obvious, but bear repeating given what happened: Don't drive aggressively in public places and always, always, always wear your seat belt.

      How much will his medical bills be, and who will have to pay? Hopefully, not the taxpayers.

        In order to qualify for the Darwin award, you must DIE doing something incredibly stupid.

        Annapolis52, I couldn't agree more. Irritating as it is, those of us who use AOL are sort of stuck with the childish, amateurish "reporting" we get from HP. And what's worse is that HP is no worse than what we get from cable TV "news" organizations, and only marginally worse than what is available on broadcast television. For those of us who've been around for quite awhile, it's more than disappointing and irritating. Anyway, thanks for posting a good point.

      I'll bet the taxpayers in Texas will wind up paying to heal this punk. Un-plug life support systems.
