Woman dies after fall from third-floor window

August 28, 2019

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has died after falling from a third-floor window at a condominium complex.

A spokesman for the Bristol district attorney says investigators are trying to determine if the death at the Waterview Heights complex in Fall River on Tuesday morning was accidental or intentional, but says it is not being investigated as a homicide.

Police responded to the scene at about 9:30 a.m. after getting several 911 calls.

The woman was transported Rhode Island Hospital in Providence where she was pronounced dead.

She was identified Wednesday as 42-year-old Stephanie Sisson, whose last known address was in Taunton.

Patricia Eagan, a resident of the complex, told The Herald News of Fall River that the victim fell from a hallway window and not from the window of a residence.
