Colombian falls to death from her 2nd-floor flat

A 25-year-old Colombian woman plunged to death from the second floor of her residential apartment in Murugeshpalya, off Old Airport Road, after returning from a party on December 8.

The victim, Karen Daniela, was residing in Wildflower Hall apartment in Rustom Bagh Layout near Manipal Hospital. She came to Bengaluru four years ago and was sharing the flat with her friend and compatriot Maria, who is a teacher by profession. 

The police said Daniela worked as a Spanish-English translator at a star hotel in Indiranagar. They said Daniela and Maria (45) went for a party to their friends’ house in Whitefield on Saturday night and were dropped back to their apartment.

Around 3.15 am, Maria heard a loud thud and rushed to the balcony. She saw Daniela, earlier standing at the balcony, had fallen and was lying on the ground in a pool of blood. Maria called her friends, who rushed to the spot and later informed the police of the mishap.

The police shifted Daniela’s body to Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital. The postmortem is yet to be conducted, a senior official said.
