DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police say a woman fell to her death from a seventh-floor balcony of a Daytona Beach condominium as her boyfriend apparently tried to save her.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/2lAR6N4 ) reports witnesses told police they saw the 50-year-old woman hanging from the side of the building around 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Deputy Chief Jakari Young says the woman landed on the pool deck. The witnesses told investigators a man was trying to pull the woman up by her arms.

Young says the boyfriend is cooperating with police, but the death is still being investigated as suspicious. Before the fall, a call to 911 came from the condo unit. The dispatcher heard arguing in the background before the call was disconnected.

No further details were immediately available.
