KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. - A woman is in critical condition after she fell from the balcony of an apartment building in Key Biscayne, authorities said.

The incident was reported early Tuesday at 1111 Crandon Blvd.

Key Biscayne Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Marcos Osorio said the 30-year-old fell four or five stories.

It was initially unclear whether she jumped from the balcony or whether the fall was accidental, Osorio said, however authorities said the mother of two children suffered from emotional issues and they believe she might have been attempting to end her life.

The woman was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where she is listed in critical condition.
