A 27-year-old Maryland woman fell 12 stories to her death at a Center City apartment building Saturday night, police said.

The woman, whose name was not released last night, was on the roof of the building near 10th and Arch Streets with five friends when she fell back into a brick chimney.

The chimney collapsed and sent her plunging down an elevator shaft, police said.
