A 52-year-old Colombian woman fell to her death Wednesday night trying to flee a hotel in Toyoyama, Aichi Prefecture, where she was being held pending deportation, police said Thursday.

Lida Ordonez was trying to escape out the window of her fourth-story room with her 3-year-old granddaughter when she fell 15 meters to her death at around 11:20 p.m., police said. The young girl also fell but suffered only light facial injuries.
