EDMONTON - A visually-impaired woman has died after falling from a platform at an Edmonton light rail transit station.

Zaidee Jenson, 29, died of her injuries Friday in hospital.

No trains were at the station at the time she fell.

Edmonton Transit officials are investigating what happened Wednesday afternoon before she fell at the University of Alberta LRT station.

The mother of two was with a friend but did not have a cane or a service dog when she fell on her way home from work.

Edmonton Transit is reviewing a video of the station platform. (CHED)
