MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A man who climbed over a fourth-floor railing

of the Mall of America rotunda has fallen to his death.

Security officers were alerted Wednesday at 6:50 p.m. to a man

with a knife on the fourth floor. Bloomington police said when

officers approached the man, he climbed over the railing and fell

to the first floor.

Mall officials say officers attempted to perform CPR on the man.

Officials say he was breathing and had a faint pulse when

paramedics took him to Hennepin County Medical Center. Police say

he later died.
