Philadelphia Police investigate two-story fall that injured elderly woman

    An elderly woman fell out of her two-story home in Port Richmond earlier this morning, causing head injuries and a broken leg.

    According to WPVI-TV, the woman fell from her window and landed on a sidewalk in an alley on the 2900 block of Jasper Street.

    Neighbors report hearing a dog barking around 3:00 a.m. Sunday morning. When they went to investigate, they say they found the woman crying out for help.

    WPVI-TV says firefighters had to cut a hole through a fence just to get to her.

    The identity of the woman has not been released.
