SEATTLE (AP) — A man who was injured in a fall from the ledge of a downtown Seattle building told police he climbed up the building to be closer to God.

He landed on the awning of the Banana Republic store Wednesday and was rescued by firefighters who took him to a hospital with a leg injury.

The man told police he had taken methamphetamines, pain killers and another unidentified drug before climbing the building and praying.
