SEOUL, South Korea — An American man and a South African woman fell to their deaths while kissing on the rooftop of a three-story villa in the center of Seoul, police said Monday.

A senior police officer said the man, 31, and woman, 26, fell at about 2 a.m. Sunday in the popular Itaewon neighborhood near U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan. The woman apparently fell first, and the man was pulled to the ground as he tried to save her, police said.

The foreigners, who were apparently living in the country and teaching English, died after they were transported to nearby hospitals, said the policeman. He declined to identify them further because of privacy concerns.

Police said they believe it was an accident, but the investigation into the exact cause of death was ongoing.
