The screen gave way and he fell from the 11th floor and landed on the roof of the parking garage five stories below.

Police say there was alcohol in the room. They are waiting for toxicology reports to determine how much the man had consumed.

Police said there was no evidence of horse play in the room and so far the death has been ruled an accident.
