A man fell to his death in Hagen when he tried to climb over a balcony into his locked apartment.
The 51-year-old forgot his key on Friday.
That's why he rang the bell of a neighbor, as he often did, and asked her if he could climb from her balcony to his next door, said a police spokesman.
During the climbing attempt, he slipped and fell from the first floor onto the meadow.
Rescue workers tried to revive him.
But he died at the scene of the accident.
