      A 35-year-old man suffered significant injures when he fell several stories to the ground off of a Rosslyn building, police say.

      Arlington County Police officials say a worker fell about three stories to the ground from the roof of a walkway that connects two buildings on Wilson Boulevard in Arlington. Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said the worker was not clipped into a harness when he fell.

      The ABC 7 newsroom is housed in the building from which the worker fell.

      The victim's attempt to grab a rope to keep from falling failed, Sternbeck said.

      Police say the man was taken to George Washington Hospital with significant internal injuries.
