A Bryan man suffers serious injuries after falling from a Lake Somerville pier Sunday afternoon.

We're told the man was fishing off the Birch Creek State Park pier around 1:30 Sunday afternoon when he either slipped or was pulled over the railing by the fish he was trying to reel in.

He fell around nine feet,  face-first,onto the rocks below.

He suffered a broken arm and sustained head injuries and was taken to a Bryan hospital by helicopter.
