A peeping Tom who fell 10 floors from the window ledge of a high-rise apartment block while filming a woman in a shower has been spared a jail term, a news report here said Wednesday.

Fong Chi-hung, 44, appeared in court heavily bandaged, in a wheelchair and wearing a neck brace Tuesday, five months after being critically injured in the fall.

He had been perched on a window ledge and was using his mobile phone to film a 28-year-old woman when she spotted him and shouted for her husband.

Fong, who had broken into a vacant neighbouring flat before spying on the woman, fell from the window ledge and survived when a tree broke his fall, the South China Morning Post reported.

At a hearing in Hong Kong's Tuen Mun court Tuesday, Fong confessed to burglary, saying he had broken into the empty flat to look for items to steal. He was given a six-month jail term, suspended for two years.

Magistrate Stephen Smout said he had taken into account Fong's remorse as well as the serious injuries he suffered.
Too bad the tree broke his fall.
Falling; leaves.
