Address: 2930 Pine Cone Circle #43, Clearwater
Deputies responded to a call of an injured man who had fallen from a John’s Pass garage rooftop in Madeira Beach. The man was transported to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. He is reported in stable condition at this time.
Deputies responded just after midnight on Friday, March 29, 2013.
Deputies responded to 177 Boardwalk Place in Madeira Beach.
According to deputies, 31-year-old Nicholas Voutsinas and a friend had climbed up to a restricted roof area of the parking garage (about seven stories high) to get a better view of the city. The friend decided to come down while Voutsinas remained. Deputies say by the time the friend reached the ground floor, Voutsinas was already laying in the roadway.
The fall rendered Voutsinas unconscious. Voutsinas was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. He sustained multiple fractures to his face, leg and pelvis. Deputies say Voutsinas was determined to have alcohol in his system.
At this time it is unclear if Voutsinas fell or jumped.
The investigation continues.
