Clearwater man recovering after seven-story fall

Posted: Updated:
PINELLAS COUNTY, FL -

A man is recovering at a local hospital Friday morning after falling from a rooftop of John's Pass parking garage overnight.

Cecilia Barreda with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office told us on the phone, Nicholas Voutsinas, 31, of Clearwater, went up to a restricted area of the John's Pass parking garage in Madeira Beach late last night. He was with his friend.

That's a seven-story garage. At some point the friend decided to go downstairs. When he reached the ground floor, Voutsinas was laying on the roadway.

The man is now at Bayfront Medical Center with multiple fractures and injuries. Doctors said his injuries are serious but they report his condition as stable at this time.

Barreda said, it is unclear if Voutsinas fell or jumped. He had alcohol in his system.

Investigation is ongoing.
