ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a Gulf coast area woman who fell from a sixth-floor balcony.

The woman fell early Wednesday. Authorities say witnesses told them the woman and her boyfriend were fighting in their sixth-floor apartment when she fell over the railing.

Police say witnesses told them they saw the nude woman hanging from the railing and the man trying to pull her up.

Authorities say it appears she slipped from his grasp and fell.

No other information was immediately available.
