A 19-year-old Ontario woman has died after falling off a balcony at a hotel in Cancun, Mexico.

A Cancun-area newspaper said the woman, identified as Giannina Di Roberto, fell from the sixth floor of the hotel.

Media reports say the incident happened early Friday and  Di Roberto's 22-year-old boyfriend was questioned by authorities.

The Cancun newspaper said guests in an adjacent hotel room reported hearing an argument just before Di Roberto fell to her death.

Lisa Monette, a spokeswoman with the Foreign Affairs Department, confirmed that a Canadian has died in Cancun. Monette said Canadian consular officials are working closely with local authorities to get more information.
