Police say the death of a man who fell from the 56th floor of a downtown Chicago high-rise building appears accidental.

Police say the 27-year-old man fell to his death from a balcony of the Aqua building about 3 a.m. Monday.

The Cook County medical examiner's office has not released the name of the man pending notification of his family.

The investigation is continuing, but police department spokesman Martin Maloney says it appears the man's death was accidental.
