SAD! A woman, 26, was seen jumping to death from a rooftop bar in Times Square. According to the police, she jumped from the “54th-floor bar of the Hyatt Centric Times Square New York just before 3:30 p.m”.
According to the NYP;
She plummeted 27 floors and landed on a 27th-floor balcony below, cops said.
Emergency responders found the woman unconscious and unresponsive on the balcony and pronounced her dead at the scene. The city medical examiner will determine the official cause of death.
Bar 54 was closed for the remainder of Wednesday, a hotel employee confirmed.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the woman was staying at the hotel or just visiting the rooftop establishment, which claims to be the city’s “highest open-air hotel rooftop bar” on its website.
The Hyatt Centric expressed its condolences to the woman’s family and directed all media inquiries to the NYPD.
“We are deeply saddened by the situation that occurred this afternoon at our hotel and our thoughts go out to the individual’s family and those who have been affected,” Hyatt Hotels Corporation general manager Tom Blundell said in a statement.
“We are working closely with local authorities and all inquiries should be directed to the New York Police Department.”
We now have an IDed on the woman.
The 26-year-old woman who plunged to her death from a fancy rooftop bar in Manhattan was an aspiring model who was “sweet and loving,” her family said Thursday evening.
Elizabeth Gaglewski, of Queens, plummeted from the ledge of Bar 54 at the Hyatt Centric Times Square New York Wednesday afternoon and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to authorities.
“She was just a good person, a sweet and loving, caring kid,” her uncle Tony Smith told The Post from inside their home.
“She was a good, loving, kind girl,” added her aunt Janet, who didn’t give her last name.
Investigators on Thursday were still trying to determine if Gaglewski jumped intentionally or fell by accident.
