Burglar injured after drain pipe escape...

 A BURGLAR has fallen seven metres into the water tank of a Brisbane house after being startled by residents and trying to escape down a drainpipe.

The man broke into a house on Gladstone Road at Highgate Hill at 10pm AEST last night before the occupants woke up and noticed him.

A police spokesman said the man then tried to escape by running up to the third storey of the home and then scuttling down a drainpipe before falling into the water tank.

"He's damaged a water tank, damaged a fence in between the two houses and damaged himself," the spokesman said.

"The people at the home called police after the man limped off, but police caught him about 200 metres down the road."

The spokesman said the man has not yet been charged by police as he was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital with suspected internal injuries.
