76-year-old woman survives seven-story fall from NYC apartment


The woman, whose name was not released, was sitting on her window ledge when she toppled over –– frightening bystanders below.

Anthony Ruggerio, 50, was smoking a cigarette on his lunch break when he heard a noise

“It was loud. Like rocks falling on the platform above me,” he told the Post. “I turned, I ducked, when I turned back there was a lady on the floor. She turned to her side and [groaned]. I thought she was dead.”

She was taken to Weill Cornell Hospital where she is being treated for a broken ankle, police said.
