A 19-year-old Marine stationed at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneʻohe Bay fell from a Waikiki hotel Saturday morning and died from his injuries.  The Honolulu Star Advertiser identified the man as Private 1st Class Luke Monahan, 19, of Palos Verdes, California.  The newspaper reports “Monahan joined the Marines at the age of 18 and was sent to Marine Corps Base Hawaii in January.”

Police said there were no signs of foul play.
