Man Survives Fall From 4th-Story Balcony Of Las Vegas Hotel

 

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police in Las Vegas say a 20-year-old man survived a fall from a fourth-story balcony inside of a casino-hotel on the Strip.

They say the man either jumped or fell from the balcony around 9:30 p.m. Saturday inside of the Luxor.

Police tell the Las Vegas Review-Journal that some of the decorations broke the man's fall and he suffered only minor injuries.

They say alcohol played a role in the incident.

The man was taken to a hospital for treatment. Authorities did not release his name.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
