"I decided it was okay to throw the old sofa out of the window."
"My neighbour came out of the building just as I threw the sofa down. The sofa almost fell on her. She was scared. I was also shocked when she suddenly came out of the building.
"She's had a lucky escape. She would have died. I was almost a murderer."
