LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- A student at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is in intensive care after he fell from a rooftop over the weekend.

A La Crosse Tribune report on Monday says the name of the 22-year-old hasn't been released.

The man's friends tell police they'd all left a bar late Saturday when the man starting climbing on top of a building. Witnesses say he might have fallen while trying to reach another roof.

He fell and hit his head. Emergency personnel found him unconscious but breathing.

He remained hospitalized Monday.
