Des Moines police say a homeless man may have rolled off a concrete bridge support while he was sleeping and fell to his death.

The man was found under the bridge over the Des Moines River Tuesday morning.

Police believe he may have rolled off the bridge support during the night and landed on concrete. Officials say the arch where he was apparently sleeping is about as wide a sidewalk.

Police say the man's death appears to be accidental. His name was not immediately released.
