Man Survives Fall from Rock Island Balcony

Posted: Updated:


A 19-year-old man was rescued from a hotel roof Sunday morning, after falling 50 feet.

It happened early Sunday morning at the Holiday Inn on 17th Street in Rock Island.

Firefighters say the man fell from an eighth story balcony to a third floor roof. No word yet on how it happened.

Officials say the man was conscious when crews arrived, but he had multiple injuries and was suffering from cold exposure.

Firefighters used a ladder as a bridge to the roof from another balcony, put the man in a basket, and lowered him to the ground.
