A woman fell from the third floor of the Atlanta VA Medical Center’s parking deck on Friday morning, Nov. 21, and later died the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

DeKalb County Fire Rescue spokesperson Capt. Eric Jackson said he received the call around 11 am, but did not personally visit the scene. Last week, he identified the victim as a man, but new information has been revealed about the case. Jackson was relaying information he received over emergency communications channels.  Atlanta VA Medical Center Police are handling the case, but attempts to reach that agency for comment were unsuccessful.

Jackson said the woman “suffered some lower extremity fractures.” It’s unclear whether she fell or jumped from the parking deck, the AJC article says.
