COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Three people were injured in a fall from the roof of a Coeur d'Alene building on Saturday night. Two women and a man were taken to a local hospital after they fell about 25 feet from a building on Sherman Avenue.

The Coeur d'Alene Fire Department told the Spokesman-Review (http://is.gd/vxLlzV ) it appears a parapet on top of the structure gave way.

Battalion Chief John Morrison says a lot of people were downtown at the time and it was lucky no one of the sidewalk was injured.
