Jesse Scott Owen, 18, said he was walking in the city around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday when the mattress fell from a building and hit him on the head, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

"This was the most absurd thing that ever happened to me," the King's College freshman said.

He said the impact knocked him unconscious.

"I woke up and people were putting me on the mattress," he said. "I asked where the mattress came from and they said, 'You were knocked out by it.'"

Witnesses said the mattress may have been carried by winds from the rooftop spa of the Setai Wall Street.

A manager at the Setai did not respond to an email requesting a comment, the Daily News said.

Owen was taken to the New York Downtown Hospital with a sprained neck and a possible herniated disc.
