DALLAS (AP) - A hotel guest from Missouri has been found dead in the atrium lobby of the 30-story Hyatt Regency Dallas after apparently falling from an upper floor.
Dallas police say a hotel security guard early Wednesday discovered the body of 37-year-old Craig McKinnon Berry of Wentzville, Mo. A police report says a hotel employee heard a loud thud and contacted security.
A hotel spokesman says the guest apparently fell from one of the upper floors. The downtown Dallas hotel's interior atrium has 18 stories.
Police are investigating the incident as an unexplained death. Further details weren't immediately available.
A Waterloo man is critically injured after falling about 50 feet as he reportedly fled from a crash.
The single-car accident happened around 8:30 Monday evening along Interstate 255 just west of Illinois Route 3.
Illinois State Police have identified the driver as 21 year old Thomas Falk.
Witnesses told police that Falk appeared to have a head injury when he got out of his car. Police say Falk argued with someone who had reported the crash to police, then jumped over a guardrail and fell to the railroad tracks below.
Falk was taken to St. Louis University Hospital by Arch helicopter. His condition is reported to be very critical.
