PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Police say a woman died after a three-story fall from the roof of a north Philadelphia row house.

Emergency responders were sent to the scene shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Police said the 19-year-old woman was taken to Temple University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead less than an hour later.

The name of the victim hasn't been released.

Although some Temple students live in the area, school officials told WPVI-TV that the victim was not a student at the university.
