The man who fell nearly 50 feet to his death last Friday in Las Vegas has been identified as a 23-year-old Philadelphia resident.

In a statement Tuesday, the Clark County Coroner's Office said the victim was Stefan Quinton Jones-Green, according to the Associated Press.

Jones-Green reportedly entered an off-limits area near the High Roller Observation Wheel on the Strip, police said.

Authorities believe the victim fell from a set of stairs and suffered injuries that led to his death, which appears to have been an accident.

An exact cause of death is still pending.
