A 25-year-old man jumped to his death from a hotel room near the top of the Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa in Atlantic City on Tuesday evening.

Atlantic City Police responded to a report of a man found dead in the hotel’s parking lot at 5:33 p.m., Sgt. Kevin Fair said.

Detectives determined the man jumped from the window of his 29th-floor hotel room.

A video posted to Twitter by Mario Cerrito III showed a broken window on one of the hotel’s top floors. He claimed to have witnessed the man jump.

So far, police have declined to release the man’s name as they contact his next of kin.
