A man who fell from a roof during Bay to Breakers festivities in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon has died, police and hospital officials said.
The 28-year-old man accidentally fell three stories from the roof of a building in the 2000 block of Fell Street along the Panhandle at about 3:30 p.m., police said.
Medics arrived and took him to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.
The medical examiner’s office was withholding the man’s name Monday morning, pending notification of next of kin.
However, he was identified by his employer as David Hamzeh.
Hamzeh worked at the San Francisco-based company Demandforce, according to Diane Carlini, a spokeswoman for Intuit, which owns Demandforce.
During the Bay to Breakers race, police arrested 21 people for public intoxication, one for possession of a firearm and one for robbery, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
