A man jumped to his death from Trump International Hotel and Tower late Wednesday morning, according to Chicago police.

The man, in his late 40s, appeared to jump from the 16th floor of the tower at 401 N. Wabash, police said in a statement.

Paramedics responded to the east side of the building at 11:45 a.m. and he was pronounced dead at the scene, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said.

Autopsy results released Thursday ruled his death a suicide, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

An outdoor restaurant, Terrace 16, is located on that floor of the 98-story-tall building, according to the Trump Tower website.

Police were conducting a death investigation.
