Authorities didn't immediately identify the man but say he could face charges once he's treated for what's believed to be a broken ankle. He was freed about 6 a.m. Tuesday after being trapped about four hours when he fell awkwardly into the narrow, debris-filled space between the buildings.
The man was bleeding but waved to TV news cameras as he was wheeled on a gurney to an ambulance.
Public safety officials say crews broke a hole through a restaurant wall to reach him, and lowered another medic on a rope to ensure the rescue efforts didn't injure the man even more. null
