STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police in Stamford, Conn., say a 42-year-old woman who fell from her condominium's 11th-floor balcony committed suicide.

Lt. Diedrich Hohn tells The Advocate of Stamford (http://bit.ly/192rPZE ) on Thursday that an autopsy by the chief state's medical examiner determined the manner of death. The woman's name was not disclosed.

Officers and paramedics were called to the building after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. A witness said the woman was conscious and responding to people talking to her immediately after she fell. She died several hours later at Stamford Hospital.

Police say she lived alone.

A building security guard said people tried to help the woman and covered her with clothing to keep her warm until the ambulance arrived.
