The body of a 27-year-old woman was found Monday on the roof of a terminal building at Narita International Airport.
According to police, the woman’s body was spotted by a passenger getting ready to board a plane at the departure gate at around 10 a.m., Fuji TV reported. The woman’s body, lying face-up, was on the first-floor roof of the Terminal 2 South Wing building, which is a restricted area.
Police said the woman, who had no passport or ticket, was wearing a green dress and still had her shoes on. They said she was a resident of Ehime Prefecture.
Police said she was confirmed dead at the scene and that apart from a head injury, there were no other external signs of injury on her body.
They believe she may have fallen or jumped from the 4th-floor observation deck 10 meters higher up, even though there is a four-meter-high fence there. The woman's handbag was found on the projecting roof of the third floor, but it is not accessible to the general public.© Japan Today
