Man Falls to Death in Effort to Save Friend

March 25, 1997|Associated Press

EL PASO — A man who had been watching the lunar eclipse fell to his death early Monday when he tried to stop a companion from slipping off a balcony.

Kenneth Hunter and Kimberly Ammons were either sitting on the railing of the third-story apartment balcony or leaning against it when Ammons felt it move, said police Sgt. Bill Pfeil.

"She started to go backward, he tried to grab her and went with her," Pfeil said.

Hunter, 30, died at the scene, apparently of head injuries. Ammons, 30, was taken to Providence Memorial Hospital with lacerations and low back injuries, Pfeil said.
