A guest at a hotel went to the roof of the Dupont Circle Hotel so he could see sights but unfortunately, after New Year‘s he was killed when he fell into a boiler shaft and tumbled 10 floors to the basement. According to the D.C. police and fire departments.
It took an hour for the firefighters to retrieve the man’s body. The event happened on Sunday shortly before 2:30 a.m. at the nine-story hotel in the 1500 block of New Hampshire Avenue NW.
“It looks like a fall,” said Rachel Schaerr, a spokeswoman for the D.C. police. “He went up to the roof to catch a really good view.”
