Man trying to get ‘closer to God’ falls from Seattle building

A 26-year-old man who said he was “trying to get closer to God” fell from a downtown building on Wednesday, Seattle police said.

Around 6:30 a.m., police were called to Fifth Avenue and Pike Street where a man who had fallen to a ledge above a storefront awning was calling for help.

The man told officers he had climbed up the building but had fallen about 30 feet to the ledge and was unable to move. Firefighters rescued the man and took him to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The man told police he had taken methamphetamines, pain killers and another unidentified drug before climbing the building to “get closer to God” and to pray.
