Tehran, Iran (AP) — On Tuesday, Iranian police began investigating the death of a Swiss diplomat who died after being reportedly fallen from a skyscraper in the capital of Tehran.

A Swiss woman in her 50s fell from the upper floors of a 20-story building that lived in northern Tehran, according to the state-run IRNA news agency. A worker found her missing on Tuesday morning and called the authorities.

In a statement, Bern’s Swiss Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that employees “died in a fatal incident on Tuesday.” The ministry refused to identify the woman, but said diplomats were in contact with local police.

The Swiss Embassy has represented America’s interests in Tehran since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
