FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man had to be flown to a Florida Panhandle hospital after jumping off a roof of a house into a swimming pool.

Battalion Chief Terry Kline with the Ocean City-Wright Fire Department says the man overshot the jump Sunday afternoon, hit the side of the pool and injured his leg.

Kline tells the Northwest Florida Daily News (https://bit.ly/1ikv7wI ) that the 20-year-old man’s friends pulled him out of the water.

The man was flown from the Fort Walton Beach home to a Pensacola hospital. His name and condition were not released.
