MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 31-year-old man was injured when he fell from the roof of a parking garage in Madeira Beach.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies say Nicholas Voutsinas and a friend wanted to get a better view of the city early Friday morning. So they climbed to a restricted area on the roof of the garage.

The friend told deputies he decided to go downstairs, but Voutsinas decided to stay behind.

Deputies say that by the time the friend reached the ground floor, Voutsinas was unconscious in the road. He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Deputies say he had fractures to the face, leg and pelvis and was in serious condition.

Authorities don’t know whether the man fell or jumped from the garage. An investigation continues.
