A 55-year-old man plummeted from the roof of a Manhattan apartment building while trying to retrieve his drone, police said Sunday.

The man, whose identity wasn’t disclosed by investigators, fell three stories from the rooftop on the building on East 12th Street in the East Village, according to the New York Post.

He had been flying his drone from the roof when it crashed on the roof of an adjacent building. He was attempting to climb down from one rooftop to the other when he slipped onto the roof of the building below, police said.

He was taken to Bellevue hospital in critical condition, police said.
