Juneau window washer falls four stories off downtown apartment building

A man reportedly fell four stories off the side of a downtown building onto an awning Wednesday afternoon, prompting a response from first responders who helped retrieve him.

Juneau Police Department spokesman Lt. David Campbell said dispatchers received multiple calls about the incident at the Marine View Center apartment building on the corner of Ferry Way and Franklin Street at 1:09 p.m., but a name, age and medical status of the man who fell was not immediately available.

According to a post on Capital City Fire/Rescue’s Facebook page, the man landed on a glass awning below him and was still tethered to a rope when the responders reached him.

CCFR did not immediately return a call about the incident.
