Woman Tumbles Off 5-Story Manhattan Rooftop After Apparently Taking Skyline Photos

A woman survived a fall from a five-story Manhattan apartment building, tumbling as she apparently was descending from the roof after taking skyline photos with friends, police said. 

The 22-year-old was taken to a hospital with a fractured pelvis, broken ankle and broken arm after the fall around 8 p.m. Saturday.

She landed in a corridor behind the building on East 25th Street, near the Kips Bay neighborhood.

Less than a month ago, a Fordham University senior was killed in a fall inside the campus bell tower.

The student apparently slipped and fell through an opening in a stairway landing as she and friends climbed the tower, which officials said was normally locked.
