Young Frenchwoman desperate for fat pipe tumbles out of window

Needy numpty goes down in quest for hookup

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

A 25-year-old French woman's search for a Wi-Fi signal ended rather badly when she fell out of a first floor window, suffering "multiple fractures".

The network-needy numpty was apparently sitting last Friday on a windowsill in her flat in Menton, a coastal town in southeastern France, with her laptop extended into the void "at arm's length".

Cue a rapid connection with the ground, followed by a whisk to the local hospital.

While docs tended her wounds, cops speculated she may have attempted suicide, or perhaps been the victim of defenestration.

The patient then reluctantly revealed the truth - something she probably wouldn't have been in a position to do if she lived on the fifth floor, as Nice-Matin notes. ®
