ORANGE BEACH, AL -
A Louisiana teenager was found dead in a parking lot after falling to his death from a balcony while vacationing on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Authorities in Orange Beach are investigating the death of an 17 year old boy who was found in the parking lot Tuesday morning of the Tidewater Condominium Complex.
Orange Beach Assistant Police Chief Greg Duck says the unidentified teenager was air lifted to a Pensacola Hospital where he later died. Duck also says the teen's parents were asleep at the time of accident and did not realize the boy went outside. After investigating the balcony where he fell investigators say there were no structural deficiencies.
This summer, at least two people have plunged from balconies in Orange Beach and one fell from a balcony in Gulf Shores.
