More details were released on Thursday on the tragic death of a USC student while on spring break in Cabo San Lucas.

Authorities in Mexico say Samuel Levine appears to have been trying to get into a hotel room by climbing outside a restricted area and onto an air conditioning unit. The fiber glass surrounding that unit couldn't hold his weight, and he fell several floors to his death.

Levine, 22, died of severe head trauma.

Investigators say Levine had alcohol in his system, and his friends confirmed that he had been drinking before the deadly fall.
