A man suffered life-threatening injuries in a fall from a roof during what appears to have been a Bay to Breakers house party today, according to San Francisco police.

The 3:30 p.m. incident on the 2000 block of Fell Street appears to be among the most serious reported during the race and subsequent celebrations.

According to NBC11, the falling victim, SF man David Hamzeh, died Sunday night.

San Francisco police arrested 21 people for public intoxication, one for possession of a firearm and one felony arrest for robbery during the race and event, according to police Officer Albie Esparza.

Another 16 people were taken into sobering centers.
