FORT MYERS, Fla. -- One Fort Myers business is looking for some answers after someone fell from their roof onto a car.

Modern Auto Sales on U.S. 41 says that when staff got there Sunday morning, they found one of their vehicles dented.

They checked out surveillance footage and found an unexpected scene. A young man is seen either falling from or jumping from the building’s roof onto the car.

Amazingly, he seems to have avoided major injury. He then gets up and walks off.

Raw video: Man falls from roof onto car at Fort Myers car dealership

The owner says it's about a 20-foot drop, and he's amazed the guy wasn't hurt. “So when we played the video, the last thing we expected to see was somebody falling from the sky, landing on one of our cars,” said owner John Dileonardo.

He believes the guy got up on the roof using a ladder they keep in the back.

Dileonardo says staff notified law enforcement about the incident. Police are looking into it, but say since it was raining when this happened, the car was too wet to pick up any fingerprints.
