NEW YORK (AP) - Welcome to the Big Apple -- the city that never sleeps and where futons fly. College freshman Jesse Scott Owen has only been in New York for three weeks. But he was knocked out cold by a flying futon.
He was on his way to class at Kings College when the lights went out for him. When he came to, people told him he had been K-O'd by a mattress.
Witnesses tell the Daily News the futon fell from a nearby roof 30 stories high. Owen was taken to a hospital to be treated for neck and back pain. He can laugh about it now and says it's all "pretty absurd."
