An apparently drunk man died after he fell from a tree and impaled his head on a fence just days after his birthday.
It is believed the 30-year-old had been drinking before his fall at the 500 block of North Berendo Street in East Hollywood, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman said. Around 12 beer cans were found near the tree.
He was known in the neighborhood for his drinking, and had just celebrated his birthday on Monday, police added.
He was found by officers after calls were received about a suspicious man standing on the street. There is no indication that he was accompanied by others at the time of the fall.
