A Youngstown man died Thursday after he fell and struck his head, a fall possibly caused by his sagging pants, according to police.

Savar Hendrix, 30, died Thursday, a Mahoning County Coroner investigator confirmed.

Witnesses said Hendrix was drinking and helping two people set up a pool at their East Judson Avenue home on Tuesday.

Reports said Hendrix complained of stomach pain and went to use the restroom. Several minutes later witnesses saw Hendrix lying on his back with his head on concrete steps and his pants around his ankles.

Police said Hendrix’s blood-alcohol volume was more than the .08 legal limit for driving.

Doctors told police Hendrix suffered a cracked skull and brain trauma consistent with a fall, reports said.
