NE woman dies in tragic fall

A North­east wo­man fell eight stor­ies from a wa­ter­front con­domin­i­um bal­cony to her death early on Fri­day in what Phil­adelphia po­lice say was a “tra­gic ac­ci­dent.”

Ngoc Tran Vo, 30, lived in Ox­ford Circle and was vis­it­ing the home of a man on the 12th floor of the Res­id­ences at Dock­side, a build­ing of posh and pricey con­dos at 717 S. Colum­bus Blvd., over­look­ing the Delaware River. Some­time be­fore 4:30 a.m., Vo fell from her com­pan­ion’s bal­cony and landed on a fourth-floor patio. She died at the scene.

One po­lice com­mand­er re­portedly said that Vo dropped a mo­bile phone over the rail­ing and was peer­ing down when she lost her bal­ance and fell. Po­lice ques­tioned the vic­tim’s com­pan­ion and searched the condo and two vehicles, but dis­covered no evid­ence of foul play, ac­cord­ing to pub­lished re­ports. Mul­tiple news agen­cies iden­ti­fied her as an exot­ic dan­cer who worked at a South Philly gen­tle­men’s club.

Po­lice are await­ing autopsy and tox­ic­o­logy re­ports on the vic­tim. ••
