Sleeping on my front porch

There’s an internet news article this week that won’t seem to go away from the headlines. 

It’s about a recent study how people living in residential high-rise buildings suffering cardiac arrest had a better chance of survival if they lived on lower floors.  Apparently, their survival odds decreased as floor numbers increased.

So in my middle-aged man pursuit of one day becoming a centenarian, I’m wondering if I might improve my odds by sleeping on my front porch.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

Perhaps it's the stairs. Going down many flights of stairs while suffering a cardiac arrest cannot be good.

True but going up and down the stairs must be good for heart health compared to doing nothing.

Thanks for your visit and comment.
