A teenager is recovering in hospital after falling from a 16-storey apartment building and suffering only broken bones.
The 15-year-old fell from the Proximity Apartments in Manukau City on Thursday.
He lives with his family on the recently completed building's top floor.
Building manager Jason Epps-Eades says the boy's fall was broken considerably by a car park roof, though residents are still stunned he survived.
Mr Epps-Eades says the boy fell past a tenant who called emergency services.
The teenager is in a stable condition in Middlemore Hospital and is expected to be discharged later this week.
Police are investigating the fall.
