Only the chute was STEEPER than he was expecting, and Robin FELL 210 FEET, all the way down to the ground floor. But he survived . . . and it's all thanks to sweet, gentle garbage. Robin was able to slow himself down a little by trying to hold the sides of the chute . . . then fell onto a huge pile of garbage. He was still hospitalized with SEVERAL broken bones and internal injuries . . . but he was alive. A maintenance worker heard him calling for help. Detectives were already searching the building for him, so the maintenance man told them Robin was at the bottom of the garbage chute. After he recovers from his injuries he'll be facing robbery charges.
