AUGUSTA (AP) — A teen-age girl was killed and a young man was injured when they fell from a third-story porch, city police said Friday.
Allison Hinckley, 17, died on the operating table at Kennebec Valley Medical Center in Augusta about three hours after the 6:30 p.m. accident Thursday.
Hinckley and Jamie Gilcott, 19, of Hallowell were visiting at an apartment complex on Eastern Avenue when the accident occurred. They were “joking around” on the porch when the railing gave way and they fell to the ground, said Augusta police Lt. Arthur Buttrick.
Buttrick said no foul play was involved and no charges would be filed.
Gilcott spent the night at the hospital, but left Friday morning against medical advice, a hospital spokeswoman said.
