Woman, 22, Survives After Falling 5 Stories From Manhattan Rooftop While Taking Photos: Report
She was reportedly conscious after the fall.
A 22-year-old is in stable condition after she fell five stories from a Manhattan building while taking pictures with her friends, according to reports.
Reilly Hamilton, 22, was on the rooftop of her building near East 25th Street when she fell on Saturday evening.
She was reportedly conscious after the fall, but officials said she fractured her pelvis as well as her right ankle and arm.
It’s not clear what exactly caused the fall, but there was reportedly a party going on at the time.
“I heard a massive crash and then I heard screaming from the top of the building," Hamilton’s neighbor, Dayo Adebanjo, told the New York Daily News. “I kind of thought that someone fell, but I was like, ‘No way.’ Then there was a brief period of silence when the girls were running down.”
Adebanjo told the paper he heard Hamilton’s friends screaming, “Is she dead?” She also said she heard Hamilton say that her legs hurt.
Hamilton’s fall comes after a college student, Sydney Monfries, fell to her death weeks before graduation while taking pictures atop bell tower at Fordham University.
