KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 20-year-old Kansas City man is dead after apparently falling off a 17th-floor balcony at the Westin Crown Center Hotel.

Schaible's friends called hotel security after waking up and not being able to find him.

Police say there are no signs of foul play, and toxicology results are pending.
