Police say alcohol played a role in a man's deadly fall from a Holiday Inn Express in west Houston. Witnesses say three people had been drinking at a party and decided to go on the roof of the hotel. The door they used was for employees only, but it was unlocked so they opened it.

Police say one of the friends decided to take pictures over the edge of the roof. He lost his balance while climbing onto the ledge of the building and fell 10 stories to the parking lot. He died on impact.
