Woman falls to her death in Limassol (Updated)

A 32-year-old woman died after falling off the roof of a four-storey apartment building in  Limassol, police said on Wednesday.

The Romanian national who was named as Andreea Daskalou was found dead in the car park of her Germasoyia apartment building on Wednesday morning.

She was spotted by a neighbour who was on the way to her car to go to work at around 6.40am.

According to Limassol CID chief Ioannis Soteriades, the woman was on the roof when she apparently lost her balance and fell to the ground.

She went up on the roof at around 10.30pm on Tuesday, something she often did after returning from work, police were told.

Later investigations revealed the cement wall around the roof terrace was only about 30 centimetres high though it should have been at least 1.10 metres high, state radio reported.

It appears she sat with her back to the wall when she lost her balance and fell.

State pathologists Sophocles Sophocleous and Nicolas Charalambous were called to the scene to examine the body.

A post mortem is expected to be carried out later.

The woman lived in the apartment with her brother.
