JUST IN: Street Closed in Ballston After Man Falls from Building

A man has been rushed to the hospital after falling from a building in Ballston in an apparent suicide attempt.

The incident happened around 3:45 p.m. at a residential building on the 1000 block of N. Stuart Street, a block from the Ballston Metro station.

Initial reports suggest that workers in a nearby office building called police to report a man standing on the roof of a building, but the man jumped before first responders arrived on scene, striking a lower roof before landing on the ground.

The man was transported via ambulance to a trauma center at a local hospital, alive but with reported serious injuries.

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger of self-harm, call 911 or the Department of Human Services’ emergency services line at 703-228-5160. CrisisLink also has a 24-hour crisis hotline at 703-527-4077 or 800-SUICIDE, or text 703-940-0888.
