Berkeley Police Department responded to the Chi Psi fraternity after receiving a report that a man had fallen multiple stories from a balcony ledge early Sunday morning.

About 12:52 a.m. Sunday, emergency personnel responded at the 2300 block of Piedmont Avenue to a report that a 19-year-old Berkeley man had fallen one or two stories and was bleeding from his head, according to BPD spokesperson Officer Byron White. Upon arrival, authorities found the man unconscious and provided aid until medical personnel arrived.

Officers learned from witnesses leaving the party that the man had fallen after losing his balance while attempting to sit on a balcony ledge. He was transported to a local trauma center and is currently in stable condition, according to White.
