Man impales himself on fence in Lincoln Heights

A man who had been warned about trespassing jumped or fell off a building in Lincoln Heights early Saturday and impaled himself on a metal fence, authorities said.

Officers responded to the 1100 block of Mission Road about 3:40 a.m. after receiving a call about a possible jumper, Los Angeles Police Sgt. David Gomez said.

The man, whose name and age were not given, had been told earlier by police to leave the premises. At that time officers saw no evidence of mental illness or threat of suicide, Gomez said.

The man was treated by Los Angeles fire personnel and transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. His condition was unknown.
