MYRTLE BEACH, SC (AP) — Two teenage girls are dead after authorities say they fell from a balcony of a beachfront hotel in South Carolina.
Myrtle Beach Police Lt. Joey Crosby tells news outlets police were called just before 4 p.m. Wednesday and found two bodies at the Camelot By the Sea Hotel.
According to our sister station WPDE, Horry county coroner Robert Edge says 16 year old Daniela Alejandra Arriaza Flores and 17 year old Amber Franco were both students at Myrtle Beach High School. Online school district calendars show that school is on spring break this week.
More details on the deaths have not been released, including how high up the girls were when they fell. Crosby says authorities do not suspect foul play in the deaths.
