A 21-year-old man has died after falling off the roof of OSF Healthcare Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois. 

The man has been identified as Joseph Croegaert, according to Journal Star. He was brought to the healthcare facility for an undisclosed medical condition. Before receiving treatment, he gained access to the secured roof area over the ambulance bay. Attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. 

It is unclear how Croegaert gained access to the secured roof area. The fall remains under investigation.
