The 18-year-old high school senior who fell off the balcony of his third floor condo knows he’s lucky.

Panama City Beach Police believe Jake Ebert, from St. Johns Michigan, was drinking before he fell off a balcony at the Beachbreak By The Sea condominiums around 8:40 Friday night.

Saturday morning, Ebert tweeted “Thank god for the good people that took care of me last night. This was definitely a wake-up call and I am very lucky to be ok.”

When officers arrived, they say Ebert was alert and talking. Paramedics took him to Bay Medical/Sacred Heart with non-life threatening injuries.
