GA man dies after fall from parking garage

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Savannah police say a man is dead after he fell from the top of a downtown parking garage.

Police say 23-year-old William Mabry died shortly after 2 a.m. Friday when he tumbled off the six-story garage into an alley.

Savannah-Chatham County police spokesman Julian Miller says two men who knew Mabry told police they had been skateboarding on the top floor of the garage. They said the victim was running atop a wall at the edge of the parking deck when he lost his balance and fell.

Mabry was declared dead at the scene by emergency responders. Police say he lived in downtown Savannah, but his family is from Shelby, N.C.
