Teen killed in balcony plunge

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Florida (WJHG) – Panama City Beach Police are releasing the name of the 13 year old Indiana boy who fell from a 15th floor balcony Saturday.

Zachary Dickman was visiting from Plainfield, Indiana with his family.

Officials Dickman and his grandmother were checking out of Palazzo condominiums, when the boy told his grandmother he left his phone upstairs.

“It’s horrible. I feel so bad for his parents. I have a 2-year-old little girl, and I couldn’t imagine, couldn’t imagine what they’re going through,” said Brittney Daniels, Palazzo Guest.

He went to go get it, but didn’t return for several minutes.

When Dickman’s grandmother went up to check on him, she realized he fell off the balcony.

Officials are still waiting for the autopsy results.
