Teen who died after fall was trying to sneak out, police say
Girl was grounded by foster parents
Officials in Montgomery County say a 14-year-old girl who fell from an eighth story window was trying to sneak out after being grounded by her foster parents.
Officials say the girl used a makeshift rope to try and climb down from her apartment in Upper Merion Township on Tuesday.
She was taken to the hospital after falling onto a garage roof and died a short time later.
Officials say they are confident all foster care procedures were followed correctly by the parents.
The name of the girl has not been released.
