A Los Fresnos woman is believed to have died accidentally after falling off a 7th story balcony at the South Padre Hotel on South Padre Island around 8 a.m. Wednesday. The fall is not believed to have been alcohol related. The 21-year-old who was visiting the Laguna Madre for Spring Break was pronounced dead on scene by Cameron County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Bennie Ochoa. The death remains under investigation, though authorities believe the woman was trying to adjust herself on the railing before losing her balance and slipping.
