Butte Man Dies After Falling onto Broken Window

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

A 32-year-old Butte man passed away Monday evening after police say he suffered a severe laceration to his left wrist after falling onto a broken window.

Butte-Silver Bow County Sheriff Ed Lester, says Jeff Kraus was highly intoxicated Monday afternoon when he tripped and fell into a broken window in a residence on Gold Street in Butte.

Lester says Kraus appeared to be too intoxicated to apply pressure to the wound, and as a result, the man died from blood loss.

There were two other people at the residence at the time of the incident, but they were on a different floor, and unaware of Kraus' injuries until hours later when they notified police. 

Kraus was pronounced dead upon arrival at St. James Healthcare.

Police do not suspect foul play was involved.
