Primark Death: Woman Falls From Liverpool Store

A woman has died after falling from a third-floor balcony at a Primark store in Liverpool.

Officers were called to the clothing store in Church Street by paramedics at 6pm on Tuesday.
The 57-year-old woman was found at the bottom of the escalators on the ground floor.
Moments earlier, she had been seen on the balcony next to the escalators on the third floor, police said.

A doctor, who was in the area at the time, treated the woman at the scene before paramedics arrived. 
She was taken to the Royal University Liverpool Hospital in a critical condition, but was pronounced dead a short time later.
A police spokesman said: "Merseyside Police can confirm that an investigation is under way 
after a woman was found with serious injuries inside a clothes store in Liverpool city centre 
on Tuesday evening."A post-mortem examination will be carried out to establish a cause of death. The police spokesman added: "Detectives are speaking to witnesses and viewing CCTV to establish the full circumstances of the incident."

At the same store five years ago a three-year-old girl fell through a gap between the escalators. 
She survived the fall, but suffered multiple injuries, including a broken arm and leg
