Woman, 24, falls to her death while attending NYC party

49

A 24-year-old woman fell to her death Saturday while trying to climb from one rooftop to another in the East Village, police sources said.

The accident occurred at around 3:30 a.m. between 200 and 202 Ave. A, the sources said. The woman was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital just after 4 a.m., authorities said.

Police had to break into one of the buildings to get access to the airshaft where the victim fell, residents said. No criminality is suspected.

The victim, who did not live in either building, was attending a party of about 20 people when she fell into a gap between the structures, a witness told The Post.

She was climbing from 202 to 200, which has six floors, when she lost her balance, the witness said.

“She was not being egged on,” the witness said.

The woman “kind of went off on her own,” confirmed a resident of 202.

The location has been used for parties, and has a barbecue grill and guard railings, said a friend of one of the residents.
