An investigation is underway after a man’s body crashed through a glass ceiling into the lobby of a popular Hollywood Beach resort.

Hollywood Fire Rescue spokesman Joel Medina said the incident occurred at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa around 12:20 a.m. Sunday.

The man died on the scene.

Medina said police investigators were trying to determine if the man accidentally fell or if this was a suicide.

Saturday evening the resort hosted the 10th Annual Fairy Tale Ball “The Wizard of Oz,” a popular fundraising event hosted by the Diamond Angels of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation.
