A Swiss diplomatic employee died after falling from a high-rise building in Tehran, Iran, multiple Iranian news agencies reported.

A national emergency spokesman told the semi-official Fars news agency that “a woman fell from a tower in Tehran and lost her life in the Kamaranieh area.”

The spokesman said that the woman was the first secretary of the Swiss embassy and a Swiss citizen, and it was not clear what led to the fall.

The woman was the second-highest ranked employee at the embassy, Reuters reported, citing the semi-official ILNA news agency.

News agencies reported the victim’s age as either 51 or 52 years old.

Switzerland has represented US diplomatic work in Iran after the two countries cut ties after the 1979 revolution, Reuters noted.
