Man Falls From Rock Island Hotel Balcony

Posted: Updated:

A man is recovering after surviving a 50-foot fall at the Holiday Inn in downtown Rock Island, Ill.

Police say the 19-years-old fell from the hotel's eighth floor balcony down to a third floor roof, around a 50-foot drop.

The incident happened early Sunday morning, January 12, 2014, around 1:00 a.m.      

The man was conscious when rescue crews got to him, but he had multiple injuries and was suffering from cold exposure.

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

There is no word yet on his condition.
