This is the hilarious moment a plumber falls into a flowerbed outside a customer’s home after tripping on a plant pot.

A video doorbell filmed Ricky walking up the customer’s driveway and knocking on the door on June 9.

He steps away from the front door to give the customer’s room to answer the door but places his left foot on a plant pot which topples over

As he steps away from the front door his left foot steps onto the rim of a plant pot which topples under his weight, taking him with it.

He reaches out to a nearby windowsill to catch himself but he doesn’t have enough grip to stop himself falling onto a low wall and then into a flowerbed.

Ricky is heard groaning as he lays in among the shrubbery with his legs dangling up in the air.

The homeowners come outside to answer the door and find Ricky still on the floor and ask if he is ok and he tells them that he smashed his head against their wall.

He escaped the fall with only minor cuts and bruising.
