The NYPD says Conner Cummings, of Rockaway, New Jersey, tried to climb a scaffold on the outside of the 42-story hotel at about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday.

He fell to one of the lower rooftops of the structure and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Cummings was apparently not a guest at the hotel.

A Four Seasons reception desk staff member said there was no immediate comment from the hotel.
