Man Impaled on Fence in Lincoln Heights

The man jumped off a four-story building on Mission Road, landing on the fencing.

A man police shooed out of a parking structure in Lincoln Heights returned about an hour later Saturday to jump off the four-story building, impaling himself on a spiked wrought-iron fence.

He is listed in critical condition at a local hospital.

Firefighters cut away the section of fence the man was impaled on and took him and it to a hospital after the roughly 3:40 a.m. jump at 1143 Mission Road, a witness told a videographer who arrived after rescuers left for the hospital.

Los Angeles police Lt. Richard Thomas of the Hollenbeck Station said the man, whose name was unavailable, had been ordered from the structure about an
hour earlier.

The fencing was atop a roughly 6-foot wall, and part of it penetrated his midsection, the witness said.
