Witnesses at the Creamfields dance festival in Sydney, Australia on Sunday thought they had witnessed a fatal fall when a man slipped by security, scaled a high scaffold, then lost his balance, tumbling down some twenty feet. Police described his actions as "outrageously stupid."

Amazingly, the unidentified man got back on his feet and saluted the crowd, who cheered, and, in the words of one witness, "sparked things back up again." The climber was treated at Sydney's St. Vincents's hospital, but was discharged later that afternoon, unhurt, and "keen to keep dancing."
