Man high on mushrooms jumps to his death from Portland building

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man who jumped to his death from the 11th story of a Portland apartment building was apparently high on illegal mushrooms, police said.

Witnesses told police the man jumped without warning about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

He told friends at party earlier that he had consumed the mushrooms.

Illegal mushrooms often cause hallucinations.
