The 35-year-old man told police he and four friends jumped from a plane about 2 a.m. Sunday, although authorities are investigating where the group took off from. The four other parachutists landed safely in a park, but this man’s parachute drifted until it became entangled on top of a parking garage when he hit the apartment building, which is across the street from the park. He was stranded there until Cleveland firefighters rescued him.
The man suffered a broken ankle and was treated at a hospital. The man told police he is a Marine Corps veteran and considers himself to be a thrill seeker to fill the void.
