A Madison man suffered head injuries early Sunday morning when he fell 13 feet from a Downtown parking ramp.

The incident happened at about 3:25 a.m. at the State Street Campus Parking Garage, 415 N. Lake St., Madison police said.

Witnesses said the 23-year-old victim punched at a window of a car leaving the garage, right before he went over a railing at the garage.

He landed on Hawthorne Court.

"Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor in this case," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
