A 62-year-old woman is believed to have died when she struck her head on a piece of concrete after she slipped and fell, while hanging out clothes to dry on Sunday, at her home in Diego Martin.

The deceased has been identified as housewife, Ann Mark, of Hillview Terrace, Upper La Puerta Avenue, Diego Martin.

According to a police report, at about 4 pm on Sunday July 4th, a relative was heading to a neighbour’s house when he saw Ann Mark lying face down on the staircase leading to the house. He called out to her, but she was unresponsive.

The police were called in and upon arrival, Ag Insp Benjamin retrieved and viewed CCTV footage which revealed that whilst hanging clothes at the back of the house, Mark slipped and fell, hitting her head on a concrete block, and subsequently became unconscious.

She died on the scene.

The body was removed to the Port-of-Spain Mortuary for an autopsy.
