Authorities are investigating after a man fell through a glass ceiling at the Hollywood Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Broward County, Fla.

An adult male crashed through the glass atrium into the hotel lobby at about 12:38 a.m. Sunday, according to Hollywood Fire Rescue Spokesman Joel Medina.

The man was pronounced dead and Hollywood Police are looking into whether or not the death was accidental.

Witnesses said the impact sounded like a bomb had gone off causing everyone to duck and run for cover.

The incident occurred about an hour after the end of the 10th Annual Fairy Tale Ball "The Wizard of Oz," a fundraising event hosted by Diamond Angels of Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation.

Hotel representatives have not yet responded to calls from NBC 6 for comment.
