CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A man died after falling from several floors Wednesday at Water Tower Place on the Magnificent Mile.

The 25-year-old fell from the 7th floor at the mall, 835 N. Michigan Ave., according to preliminary information from Chicago police.

A police source said he may have jumped in an apparent suicide attempt.

The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

Area Central detectives are investigating.

In November 2019, a 65-year-old woman died at the shopping center after jumping from the seventh floor. Her death was ruled a suicide.
