LEWISTON, Idaho -

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 Timothy J. Yahtin, 42, 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.
