Man Dies Trying to Climb Four Seasons Hotel

Cummings was pronounced dead at the scene.

His friend climbed down to get help.

"We're trying to get answers. They say that he went up the elevator, and then went up a stairway, and then went out on a balcony, but the cops aren't saying exactly what happened. And, I know the medical examiner was up there. I mean, he's a young kid, he's a good kid, they weren't drinking or anything, they were taking a picture," said Kate Gentile, the victim's aunt to WABC Wednesday.

Cummings is from Rockaway, New Jersey and was attending college in Massachusetts.
