Police in northern Idaho say a Warm Springs man has died after falling from a second-story deck at a Lewiston home.

Lewiston police say Timothy Yahtin, 42, died Tuesday from head and neck injuries after the 12-foot fall. Police Capt. Roger Lanier said Yahtin was taken by ambulance to an Idaho hospital around 7:30 p.m. and 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. There is no sign of foul play, and no autopsy is scheduled.
