The police said that she was sitting on a railing of an escalator at about 10:52 PM when she fell to the concourse below and died as a result of the injuries she sustained.

"We extend our deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the woman involved in the tragic incident," police spokesman Nate Magee said after her death was announced just after 11 PM on Saturday. No foul play is suspected, meaning police believe the woman was not pushed or jostled before she fell.

"To my understanding, there was none of that, it was just an accidental fall, I don't think anyone pushed her or anything like that," he told The Denver Post, citing witness accounts.
