Man injured after falling off balcony during U District party

SEATTLE - A party came to an abrupt end for one man Friday night after he fell from a second story balcony and seriously injured himself, said police.

Officers and fire department medics responded to the 4500 block of 17th Avenue Northeast just before 11:40p.m. after receiving a call that a man had fallen off a balcony.

Police say the victim was hanging out on a crowded balcony during the party when he tried to get around people by partially climbing over a railing. As he attempted to move along the railing he lost his footing, falling two and half stories and landing on the street between two cars.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police do no suspect foul play.
