News In Brief

I'LL USE THE STAIRS NEXT TIME

For at least part of his accidental fall off a five-story building, Ken Larsen was plunging head first. But when it was all over, Larsen, who'd been helping to lay cable in Walnut Creek, Calif., walked away with only scrapes and bruises. It began when he took one too many steps backward. But halfway to the ground, with horrified tenants watching through the windows, the cable he still was holding slowed his fall - as his co-worker on the roof clamped down on the other end. Larsen arrived on his feet. "It was," he said, "like landing after a parachute jump."
