A Marine from Rancho Palos Verdes has died after falling 17 stories from his hotel room in Hawaii.

According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, 19-year-old Luke Monahan fell from a window at the llima Hotel in Waikiki on Saturday.

"I want answers and I want to talk to the two Marines that were in the room with him," his mother, Eileen told the Star-Advertiser. "I want to know if anyone gave him a drink because he was underage. I want to know if there was a fight or if there was a broken fence and he fell through it. He wouldn't just jump."

Monahan and two fellow Marines were on a four-day pass for the Memorial Day weekend.

Monahan had trained at Camp Pendleton before being stationed in Hawaii.
