COLUMBIA — Emergency workers responded to the new city parking garage at Fifth and Walnut streets where a woman appeared to have fallen onto the canopy of the garage, said Deputy Chief Stephen Monticelli of the Columbia Police Department.
Police received a call at 4:49 p.m. from a witness who saw the woman hanging off the overhang of the parking garage, Sgt. Jill Wieneke of the Columbia Police Department said. Officers arrived at the scene just after 4:52 p.m.
It has not been confirmed to be a suicide, but officers will look at security videos to rule out any foul play and determine what level of the parking garage she fell from, Wieneke said.
