A man in his 20s sustained a head injury and was hospitalized in serious condition Sunday night after falling from old refinery equipment in a restricted part of Seattle’s Gas Works Park, a Fire Department spokesman said.

The victim, who was not immediately identified, fell from a height of at least 10 feet, spokesman Kyle Moore said Monday morning. He crashed into a chain-link fence surrounding the equipment before landing on a patch of grass, Moore said.

The Fire Department was called at 9:17 p.m. There were “no trespassing” signs at the location, Moore said.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center. He was conscious but not alert, said Moore.

He was in stable condition Monday morning, a nursing supervisor said.
