Bystanders as well as a taxi driver were shocked Tuesday when at the intersection of Carrera 51D and Calle 59 in the Prado neighborhood, just north of downtown Medellín a naked foreigner either fell or leapt from a tree, completely naked, onto a passing taxi, severely damaging the car’s roof and crushing the rear window.

Though completely naked and without identification, witnesses indicated the man was a foreign citizen perhaps due to his accent. He was attended to by police and an ambulance, having suffered contusions and lacerations. The taxi was seriously damaged though the driver appeared to have escaped injury.
