SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police say a man has died after falling off a building during a Bay to Breakers party in San Francisco.
The incident happened at an apartment building across from the Golden Gate Park panhandle around 3:30 p.m. Sunday several hours after the race began.
Police say the man apparently fell from the roof on to the pavement. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital but he succumbed to his injuries.
His name has not yet been released.
Also during Sunday's event, police arrested 21 people for public intoxication, one for possession of a firearm and one felony arrest for robbery.
Police Spokesman Officer Albie Esparza says one officer sustained minor injuries during an arrest.
Esparza says another 16 people were taken to sobering centers for drinking too much.
