PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. -

A 13-year-old boy was killed after he fell 15 stories off a balcony in Panama City Beach, Florida Saturday.

According to WBTW-TV, Zachary Dickman of Indiana was on vacation visiting his mom, brother and grandmother at the time of the accident.

Authorities said the family was getting ready to check out from the Palazzo Condominiums when the teenager returned to the room to get his cell phone.

It is unclear why Dickman was out on the balcony or how he fell.

Foul play is not suspected. An autopsy is expected to be conducted to determine the teen's cause of death.
