A woman has died after falling from a fifth floor balcony in a Gothenburg apartment block late on Tuesday night.

The incident occurred shortly before midnight in the city's Kallebäck district and was preceded by a heated argument in the apartment.

"We had it reported to us as an apartment quarrel. Then we found the woman. We don't know yet whether she jumped or was thrown out," police spokesman Allan Berg told TT.

He also noted that a number of people had dialed for emergency services in connection with the fall.

"There seems to have been a lot of arguing and screaming. There was some sort of relationship trouble. A man in the apartment was taken in for questioning," said Berg.
