Elderly woman janitor falls from 1st floor, dies

A 70-year-old woman died after accidentally falling from the first floor of a commercial complex in Sampangiram Nagar on Wednesday night.

Mariamma, who worked as a janitor in a photography studio in the complex, was cleaning the area outside the studio when she tripped up on the carpet and plunged over the low wall around 9.30 pm. Hearing the loud thud, people in the complex rushed down only to find Mariamma lying in a pool of blood. They took her to a nearby hospital but it was too late, police said.

The victim is said to have been an alcoholic and suspected to have been drunk on Wednesday night too.

But police said they were waiting for the post-mortem to ascertain whether she was indeed drunk.
