CLEVELAND -- Police say an 18-year-old man that fell from the roof of a Cleveland school has died.

It happened just before 2 a.m. Saturday. Two teens were on the roof of Clara E. Westropp Elementary School at 19101 Puritas Avenue.

The teens were drinking on the school's roof.  One of the men went to urinate off the side of the roof, and that's when he slipped and fell.

The victim, now identified as Joshua Geiger, was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

The Cleveland Police Department is investigating the accident. Alcohol is believed to be a factor.
