Third Balcony Fall Incident for Spring Break '05

There were some scary moments Wednesday morning for a spring breaker from Illinois after he fell from a balcony.

It happened at the Flamingo Motel on Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach.

Beach police tell NewsChannel Seven 19-year-old Ryan Coon of Lake Zurich, Illinois, and a friend were running around the second floor of the motel. Investigators say coon missed turning at the stairs and hit a balcony railing.

That railing, according to police, gave way and Coon fell one story on to some grass. He was treated and released from a local hospital.

Police think alcohol was a factor in the accident.
