    A woman fell off the roof of a Clairemont store Friday and fell 15 feet, hitting her head.

    Emergency crews were called to the Crown Ace Hardware at 4615 Clairemont Drive in Clairemont Town Square around 1:30 a.m. and found a man on the roof of the building.

    He was up there with a woman apparently before the woman decided to try and make it down and fell through an awning, landing on the ground 15 feet below.

    Emergency personnel rushed her to a nearby hospital with head injuries, officials said.

    San Diego police said the pair were drunk and trespassing but there was no evidence of an attempted burglary.

    The man and woman will face charges of trespassing.
