A Marquis At The Lyceum Thatre Broke His Fall

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — A 60-year-old man was hospitalized with minor injuries on Sunday afternoon after he fell out of a window in Midtown.

The man was attending a production of ‘The Nance’ at the Lyceum Theatre when he fell off of a chair and tumbled out of a second story window, 1010 WINS reported.

Witnesses told 1010 WINS reporter Gene Michaels that they heard a woman scream ‘Oh my God he fell out the window’, just before the show began.

“Comin’ up to our seat, there was a crowd of people looking out, and they said he fell out onto the awning,” Stuart said.

The man landed on top of a marquis and was rescued by EMS workers who propped a ladder up against the marquis and carried him down.
