Messy aftermath: The car after it fell four floors at the Star City complex in Kota Kinabalu.

KOTA KINABALU: A man reversed his Myvi in a multi-storey car park in the city’s downtown area here and ended up plunging four floors to the ground level of the Star City shopping complex at 7am yesterday.

The 53-year-old driver suffered fractured shoulder bones and bleeding in the lungs.

City police deputy chief Supt M. Chandra said the man was reversing his car when he lost control of the vehicle, which then rammed into a wall before crashing to the ground floor.

Sabah Fire and Rescue Services Department spokesman Affendy Ramin said it took seven rescue personnel about 10 minutes to pry open the vehicle and pull out the man.

He was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where a sample of his blood was taken to help police in their investigations.
