NATIONAL POLICE are investigating the death of a 17-year-old girl who fell from the terrace of her home in Torre del Mar.
According to a police report, the young woman had gone onto the terrace to get some washing in the early morning and for reasons which are still unclear, she fell from a height of at least10 metres.

The mayor, Francisco Delgado, expressed his condolences to the family and confirmed that the town was very upset by what had happened.
The girl’s body was taken to the coroner’s office in Malaga for an autopsy to be carried out.
