RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond Police say a student who died after falling from a window in an apartment building near campus is the second such fatal incident in five week.

Officers tell The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2dTFPoD ) that 19-year-old Emma Pascal of Fairfax County fell to her death Thursday afternoon from a 10th floor window at the Towers at Franklin. The apartment building is near Virginia Commonwealth University, where police say Pascal was a student.

Police say on Sept. 10, 18-year-old Jordan Bowman of Henrico County, a VCU student who lived in the same building, fell to her death from a window in her 13th floor apartment.

Authorities do not suspect foul play in either death.
