BROOKLINE, Mass. — A 22-year-old man watching the Boston Marathon from the roof of an apartment building has crashed through a skylight and plunged five stories in Brookline.

The Boston-area university student suffered serious injuries but was conscious after the fall Monday in the atrium of the Brookline building at 1834 Beacon St.

Brookline police spokesman Lt. Philip Harrington said the man was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment. Harrington did not immediately identify the man, but said he was from out of state.

Additional information was not immediately available.
