Man Falls To Death During Spitting Contest
23-Year-Old Dies From Injuries In Fall From Balcony

CHICAGO -- A 23-year-old man suffered fatal injuries when he fell from his Mt. Prospect balcony during a spitting contest with his friends, police in northwest suburb said Tuesday.

Bartosz Drobek was participating in a "spitting contest" with his friends at 12:35 a.m. Monday on the balcony of his apartment building at 1700 W. Palm Drive in the suburb, when he lost his balance and fell to the ground, according to a Mt. Prospect police news release.

Drobek struck his head on the pavement two stories below, according to the release. He had earlier gone out onto the balcony to smoke cigarettes with two other people, according to the release.

Drobek was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge in critical condition and was pronounced dead there at 12:25 p.m. Tuesday, according to a Cook County Medical Examiner's Office spokesman.

Police believe the fall was an accident, but continued to investigate the circumstances of Drobek's death Tuesday afternoon, according to the news release.

Drobek, his brother and a friend, were competing in a spitting-distance contest, according to Ollech.

He said at one point, Drobek crouched down and sprung up to spit off the balcony and went over the railing.

His brother and friend immediately called 911 following the accident.

Drobek had been consuming alcohol prior to the fall, Ollech said. No citations were given out to anyone involved, he said.

Ollech could not provide background on the man and calls to two residents in the apartment building went unanswered Tuesday afternoon.
