Woman in car park death plunge

A European woman has died after her car plunged six storeys from a car park in Abu Dhabi, state media in the United Arab Emirates reported.

The official WAM news agency quoted Abu Dhabi police Major Saeed al-Dhaheri saying the accident happened at 8am local time yesterday while the woman was reversing the vehicle.

The victim was described as a 54-year-old European. Her nationality was not released.

Police say an investigation is under way.

Oil-rich Abu Dhabi, like nearby Dubai, has seen a boom in the construction of high-rise towers in recent years that have transformed the city's skyline.
