Quincy Firefighters were called to 609 Vermont at 9:28 a.m. Monday on a report of a man falling down an elevator shaft.

Crews arrived and found that the man had fallen 20 to 30 feet. They could not determine how the fell, or how the unidentified man got into the building.

The man was taken to Blessing Hospital. There was no information on his condition.

The building in which the man fell is one of five buildings recently purchased by Adams County to make way for the construction of a new jail.

Demolition of the buildings is expected to begin by the end of the month.
