LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A UW-La Crosse student was still hospitalized in intensive care Monday, after he fell from a rooftop.  

According to police, the 22-year-old man was drinking with friends late Saturday night, when he wanted to show them how to get to the top of a nearby building. Once he got up there, witnesses said he was running around -- and he might have tried to jump to the roof of a neighboring building, when he fell and hit his head.  

Rescuers said the victim was breathing when they arrived at the scene -- but he was unconscious.  

He was taken to the Mayo Health System's Franciscan facility in La Crosse.
