Woman dies after falling from Manhattan apartment building

The fatal fall marks the borough’s second incident involving a young woman in the past week.

A 26-year-old woman fell to her death from a Manhattan fire escape while trying to reach the roof of a five-story apartment building, New York police say.

The tragic accident marked Manhattan’s second fatal fall involving a young woman in the past week.

Tyler Marie Thorp of The Bronx was visiting a friend who lives in Kips Bay when they decided to climb onto the property’s roof on 237 East 28th Street shortly before 1 is on Friday, local time, police said.

Ms. Thorp apparently fell from the fifth-floor fire escape into a courtyard behind the building, where police said she was found unconscious and unresponsive following an emergency call.

Paramedics declared her dead at the scene.

An autopsy was pending, but no criminality is suspected, police said.

It is the second fatal fall involving a young woman in Manhattan in the past week.

On Saturday, Cameron Perrelli, 24, was killed when she fell down an airshaft between two apartment buildings in the East Village around 3.30am. Ms. Perrelli was partying with about 20 people on the roof of the building when she tried to climb onto the top of another property and lost her balance, a witness told The Post following the incident. Ms. Perrelli, who lived elsewhere in the East Village, had been drinking at the party, which was thrown to celebrate a friend’s birthday, police sources have said.
