    A 15-year-old girl died after falling four stories onto a parking structure at an Edgewater neighborhood condo building Friday morning.

    The girl -- identfied by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office as 15-year-old Lina Sanchez -- fell from the 8th floor of a building in the 5800 block of North Sheridan Road onto a parking garage four stories below about 10:30 a.m., police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada.

    The medical examiner’s office said the girl lived in the building.

    Sanchez was taken to St. Francis Hospital of Evanston, where she later died at 12:36 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said.

    The 26-story building was built in 1967, according to various real estate websites.

    Area North detectives are investigating.
