Idaho Man Killed After Falling Off Deck
LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — Police in northern Idaho say an Oregon man has died after falling from a second-story deck at a home in Lewiston. Lewiston police say 42-year-old Timothy J. Yahtin of Warm Springs, Ore., died Tuesday from head and neck injuries after the 12-foot fall.
Lewiston Police Capt. Roger Lanier tells the Lewiston Tribune that Yahtin was taken by ambulance to a local hospital at about 7:30 p.m. where he was pronounced dead. Lanier says Yahtin went onto the deck during a gathering of friends, and that another individual later found him at the bottom of the railing. Lanier says there is no sign of foul play and no autopsy is scheduled.
