New evidence suggests that the famous fossilised human ancestor dubbed "Lucy" by scientists died falling from a great height - probably out of a tree.
CT scans have shown injuries to her bones similar to those suffered by modern humans in similar falls.
The 3.2 million-year-old hominin was found on a treed flood plain, making a branch her most likely final perch.
It bolsters the view that her species - Australopithecus afarensis - spent at least some of its life in the trees.
