HAGERSTOWN, Md. — A woman has died after apparently falling from an eighth-floor balcony at a low-income housing complex in Hagerstown.

City police told The Hagerstown Herald-Mail that the 45-year-old woman died early Monday morning after falling from near the top of one of the two Walnut Towers buildings operated by the Hagerstown Housing Authority.

The complex provides affordable housing for the elderly and disabled.

Sgt. Paul Kifer said the woman was locked out of her apartment and apparently was trying to climb onto her balcony from another balcony accessible from an eighth-floor common area.
