    where did he fall from

    Hello:

    In this book(New Outlook, Volume 83 edited by Alfred Emanuel Smith, Francis Walton) :

    The driver announced, " Here was where Montgomery fell." The ladies craned their necks. " Where did he fall from ?" " From up there, madam ! He fell from the place where you see the sign, down to the road here, and the fall ended his life.

    Is it idiomatic to ask the underlined question and put "from" at the end of this question? (Where did he fall from)


    Thank you.
