Man jumps to death from Stratosphere tower


LAS VEGAS (AP) - A man jumped to his death from around the observation and ride level of the 1,149-foot-tall Stratosphere casino tower on Sunday around 3:30 p.m., police said.

The man fell through a roof of a structure just south of the tower, smashing some sprinkler pipes, said Lt. Michael Dalley of the Las Vegas police.

"He actually jumped," Dalley said. "There was no one where he landed."

The man had made his way onto a beam before jumping, he said.

Fire department crews were dispatched to the scene to retrieve the body. Police were interviewing witnesses and trying to determine the man's identity.
