A local man is dead after falling 10 stories at an apartment complex on Church Street in Saranac Lake.
Saranac Lake Village Police Chief Bruce Nason says officers responded to an emergency call at about 2:11 p.m. Monday. Police arrived at the Dechantel Apartments and found the man's body on the ground between the apartment building and Helen Street.
Speaking Tuesday morning, Nason said the man's name and age are being withheld pending notification of family members.
"It appears that he may have been cleaning some windows when he fell," he said. "It's being considered accidental at this point."
Nason says another law enforcement agency is assisting Saranac Lake police in notifying family members, who do not live in the area.
More information will be provided as it becomes available.
