Man injured in fall from roof of northeast Forsyth home

NORTH FORSYTH — A 33-year-old man who fell about three stories from the roof of a northeast Forsyth house Monday morning is expected to recover, officials said.

According to Forsyth County Fire Division Chief Jason Shivers, the man broke his left arm and suffered back injuries after falling 25 to 30 feet from the home on Windjammer Point, off Parks Road.

The man, who had been working on the house, apparently lost consciousness for a few minutes after the fall and was semiconscious when firefighters got there.

According to Shivers, the man was taken by ambulance to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville. His injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

The incident has been deemed an accident.
