Update: Man dies after falling from hotel balcony


A deadly start to the Labor Day week in St. Joseph.

Police say a man fell from a fifth floor balcony at the Silver Beach Hotel Saturday night.

That man has been identified as 38-year-old David Ginter of Hebron, Indiana.

It happened around 8:45pm.

Ginter was unresponsive and taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Foul play is not suspected, although police believe alcohol may have been a factor.

The hotel released a statement Sunday saying the man was a regular guest and, "We all knew him by name and it is with deep sadness this morning to know that we will not be seeing him here again."

The incident is still under investigation by the St. Joseph Department of Public Safety.
