A MAN believed to have fallen from a first-floor balcony while cleaning windows has been airlifted to hospital (Thursday, February 27).

Paramedics were called to Liverpool Terrace, in Worthing town centre, at around 12pm this afternoon, following reports a man had fallen.

The air ambulance landed on Worthing beach and transferred the casualty to hospital at 1pm.

Marc Jeffery, 23, who was at the scene shortly after the incident, said: “It appears it was a window cleaner who was working up there, when the railings gave way.

“I saw the paramedics and then the helicopter land.”

Another eyewitness, who would not be named, added: “I was working nearby and heard a scream. I turned round and somebody had fallen from the balcony.”
