A 22-year-old man suffered serious injuries when he fell an estimated 22 feet from a roof in downtown Madison early Saturday morning.

Madison police said the downtown resident fell from a roof in the 200 block of State Street onto a crevice between two buildings at about 4:30 a.m.

He was taken to a hospital with serious injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

The victim had been out on the roof with a female friend getting some fresh air.
