Man falls from roof onto downtown Seattle store awning

A man apparently scaled the side of the downtown Seattle Banana Republic store this morning and fell off the roof on the store’s awning.

Seattle fire crews were called to the store at 500 Pike Street shortly before 6 a.m. after receiving reports of a man laying on the awning, 15-feet above the women’s store entrance, yelling for help and possibly crying, said Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore. Medics brought in a ladder truck with a basket attachment to rescue the man, Moore said.

“He had apparently climbed up the side of the building and then fell and landed on top of their hard-surfaced awning,” Moore said. “He was definitely not with it.”

The man suffered a fractured right ankle and was taken to Harborview Medical Center.
