Army recruit falls to death from hotel window

 An Army recruit about to leave for basic training fell nine stories to his death from the window of a

Cleveland hotel. He's 18-year-old John Castillo of Fremont.

Police say he was with five other military recruits at the Embassy Suites when he fell from the window Wednesday night.

He apparently playfully ran toward the window, tried to stop and fell.

A witness claims he saw Castillo walking down a hallway drunk shortly before the hearing him fall out the window.

Army officials say they advise recruits to get a good nights sleep when they have to leave early the next morning, and that they're pretty much on their own when staying at a hotel.

It's highly likely they military will now reevaluate the level of supervision new recruits get.
