PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a Michigan man has died after falling seven stories from a Panama City Beach hotel balcony.

Investigators say 22-year-old Aaron Scott Thompson, who was visiting from Kalamazoo, Mich., attempted to climb down the outside railing of the hotel balcony Saturday night when he slipped and fell.

The News Herald of Panama City reports that a hotel security guard had talked to Thompson before Thompson began climbing the outside of the building. Investigators are awaiting an official medical examiner’s report, but they say it appears the death was accidental.
