FITCHBURG, Wis. (AP) -- Police say a Fitchburg man has died after falling about 30 feet from a second-story balcony.

Emergency crews responded Saturday evening to a report of a man who fell from a balcony. They found the 59-year-old man with massive head trauma.

He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Reports show the preliminary investigation suggests the fall was accidental, and alcohol may have been a factor.

The man's name hasn't been released.
