Man falls from John's Pass parking garage roof

MADEIRA BEACH — A Clearwater man was hurt after falling from a parking garage roof while watching the skyline.

Nicholas Voutsinas, 31, and a friend climbed to the roof of a parking garage at John's Pass early Friday to look at the city, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said. Just after midnight, the friend climbed down, about seven stories high. Its location at John's Pass overlooks Madeira Beach and Treasure Island.

When he got to the bottom, he saw Voutsinas unconscious on the ground. Voutsinas was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with fractures to his face, legs and pelvis, the Sheriff's Office said.

He was stable Friday morning. Deputies said Voutsinas had been drinking.
