PHILADELPHIA (AP) — One of three people hurt when a fourth-floor balcony collapsed during a birthday party at a Philadelphia apartment has died.
Police say a 22-year-old man who suffered severe head and neck injuries in the fall was pronounced dead at a hospital early Sunday morning.
Police say the man and two women had been attending a party in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood. Authorities say the three had stepped out on a balcony late Saturday to smoke cigarettes when the collapse occurred.
