A 30-year-old Hod Hasharon man died early Wednesday morning after trying to impress his friends by climbing onto the railing of a third story apartment balcony. According to the testimony of friends at the scene, the man stood on the railing with his hands, and suddenly fell to the ground. During the fall, he struck the railing of a second floor balcony. The victim's mother, who was sleeping in her second story apartment, heard about the tragedy from the police. Police have discounted the possibility of foul play, and say that the events surrounding the death were purely accidental.
