ST. PETE BEACH, Florida — Florida authorities say alcohol may be a factor in the death of an Ohio man who fell while trying to climb to the roof of a beachfront condominium.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says Cody Conley of Centerville, Ohio, died early Saturday after trying to climb from the sixth floor landing of a St. Pete Beach condominium to the roof.

Deputies say Conley had stripped down to his boxer shorts before attempting the climb.

Conley's 17-year-old brother also climbed over the landing's railing to try to stop his brother from falling. Deputies say Conley fell to the pavement below and died at a hospital.

The sheriff's office says Conley's death appears to be accidental. An autopsy is pending.

Conley and his family were visiting Florida for a family wedding.
