CHENNAI: A 30-year-old man, said to have been drunk, died after he slipped from the third floor onto the neighbour’s house by crashing through the asbestos cement sheet roofing and injuring a woman and her son there at Royapettah on Wednesday night. 

Police said Dinesh Kumar, a painter, had gone to his brother’s house at Royapettah on 
Wednesday night. “The duo were sitting on the third floor and consuming liquor. Around 11.30 pm, Dinesh informed his brother that he was going to sleep and is believed to have sat on the parapet wall from where he fell,” said  a police source.
