There was an article about him in the Echo. Apparently now he is going to enter the Xfactor because he loves singing and feels very lucky - he he. Good on him.

A very similar thing once happened to me, I was walking in Church Street in Liverpool City Centre next to Dixons.

They're used to be a concrete canopy that hung over the pavement and people would walk underneath it.

Here's a picture:

I was walking underneath it when I heard a smash very close to me. At first I thought it was box of eggs that had been thrown. I turned around to see what the noise was when I saw it, a large chunk of concrete had fallen out of the canopy.

It narrowly missed me by a foot, the block was about six inches thick, six inches wide and a foot long. I carried on walking. The people around me gasped and stood amazed at how lucky I had been.
