Man Falls From Roof Trying to Scare Off Baboon in Kenya.

A Kenyan man fell four stories from the roof of a building while trying to shoo away a baboon, Saturday, July 4.

35-year-old bus conductor Dickson Maina spotted the animal sitting on the roof of his neighboring building and tried to scare it away, concerned for the safety of the children inside.

Maina said he broke his left arm and sustained deep cuts to his thumb and cheeks.

According to local residents, the baboon became aggressive after becoming separated from its troop. It eventually left the area on its own accord. (AP)
