(Las Vegas, NV) — Authorities say they’re investigating the death of a Port Adelaide Australian rules football player who fell about 30 feet from a roof at a Las Vegas hotel.

The Clark County coroner’s office says a security guard at the Flamingo hotel called police about 5:40 a.m. Sunday to report a person had apparently fallen onto a driveway.

John McCarthy was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 6:15 a.m.

Coroner’s officials were conducting an autopsy Monday, but say determining McCarthy’s exact cause of death could take weeks pending toxicology test results.

A group of 11 Port players left Adelaide, Australia on Saturday for a vacation in the United States.
