Man Falls to his Death From Casino During Bachelor Party

A man fell to his death from the 11th floor of a Colorado hotel while celebrating a friend's bachelor party early this morning. Dirk Anderson, 29, was sitting on a window ledge, leaning against the glass at the Lady Luck Hotel and Casino in Black Hawk around 5am, when witnesses say the glass gave way and he fell out, landing on the roof of a seventh-floor parking garage below, reports KUSA. Cops say there was, not surprisingly, alcohol at the bachelor party, but they're waiting on toxicology reports to determine whether Anderson was drunk when he fell, CBS Denver reports.
