Around 5:30 a.m., Hollister Police officers responded to White River Mountain Apartments after a report of a man lying at the bottom of a breezeway.
An officer contacted 33-year-old Chad Hayden who was bleeding from his head and disoriented. Western Taney County rescuers initiated lifesaving procedures on the man, until an ambulance arrived. He was then transported to Cox Branson, where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators say the man had an existing medical condition which may have contributed to the fall.
