When a naked British woman dangled from a stairwell!

London: A naked British woman was left dangling, upside down, in the stairwell of a Spanish hotel block after she tumbled over a handrail while making love with her husband.

The 49-year-old, known only by her initials AMAM, plunged several feet into the void in the early Saturday. But she survived from smashing into the marble floor below as her right ankle was trapped between two bars as she fell, the Daily Mail reported.

She was left hanging inches from the ground - spared from sustaining a serious head injury - during the incident on the Spanish island resort of Tenerife.

The woman was finally saved after emergency service crews arrived following her husband`s call.

The woman suffered a broken ankle, as the firemen saved her by forcing apart two of the railings to free her.

A police spokesman said: "Her good luck was that getting her leg caught stopped her from falling. Her bad luck was that she broke her ankle, was naked and couldn`t get free."

"It isn`t a police matter so she isn`t on any charges but we warned her and her husband to think about safe sex in the future," he added.
