Two men in the Czech town of Most, aged 33 and 28, tried to ease the burden of moving a corner sofa down two stories of stairs, so they threw it in pieces out the window. Unfortunately, one piece landed on the back of a passing elderly lady, who was hospitalized and is in recovery for at least six weeks.
The two men now face charges of severe bodily harm due to negligence, a charge which carries an up to two year prison term. The two men evidently did not see the lady. As soon as they became aware of what happened they called the emergency services. The spokeswomen for the Most Police Ludmila Svetlakova informed the public of the incident on Wednesday.
