Trash saver

NEW YORK — Authorities in New York City say a man who tried to jump to his death from his ninth floor apartment was saved by a heap of trash bags that had gone uncollected since last week's blizzard.

Fire officials say the 26-year-old was taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan shortly after noon on Sunday. He was listed in critical but stable condition.

Vangelis "Angelo" Kapatos landed on his back after jumping from his ninth-floor window. No one was home and he left no note, the New York Post reported.
