A woman was killed after a suicidal man who jumped from a parking garage fell on her as she walked with her date nine floors below.

Taylor Kahle, 29, was killed in the freak accident in San Diego, California just before 8pm on Sunday.

The man in his 20s or 30s plunged from the ninth floor and fell onto Ms Kahle as she walked past the parking structure. She was immediately killed at the scene.

The man who jumped was taken to hospital and pronounced dead shortly after.

Ms Kahle's boss, Laurel McFarlane, told CBS8 that her employee was on a second date with a man she had met online when the tragedy struck.
