Somehow, the cellphone slipped out of her hand.
Ngoc Tran Vo, a 30-year-old beauty with a checkered past, was on a 12th-floor balcony of the Residences at Dockside in the wee small hours Friday, looking south on the Delaware River, when her phone tumbled to a patio eight floors below.
Vo, and the man whose apartment she was visiting, called security from the posh condominium and asked them to retrieve the device, said police Capt. Laurence Nodiff, of South Detectives.
“They said they could do it at a reasonable time, but it wasn’t even 4 a.m.,” he said. “They couldn’t disrupt the sleep of anybody who was in the [fourth floor] apartment.”
