Tyler Marie Thorp Bronx woman falls to her death while scaling fire escape of 5th story Manhattan building in Kips Bay.
The tragic accident marked the borough’s second fatal fall involving a young woman during the past week.
Tyler Marie Thorp of the Bronx was visiting a friend who lives in Kips Bay when they decided to climb onto the roof of 237 E. 28th St. shortly before 1 a.m., cops said.
Thorp apparently fell from the fifth-floor fire escape into a courtyard behind the building, where cops said she was found unconscious and unresponsive following a 911 call.
Paramedics declared her dead at the scene the nypost reported. An autopsy was pending but no criminality is suspected, cops said.
‘She was an awesome young lady,’ Thorp’s mother, Leslie Stewart, 51, told the Daily News on Saturday. ‘Very artistic. Very talented young lady… It was horrible. We had to identify her just now.’
Thorp’s mother recalled her final conversation with her daughter before she took a cab with her friend to go to Manhattan the night she died.
‘I was sitting right there on that couch,’ the mother told the Daily News. ‘I said, ”I love you, Booch.” And she said, ”I love you mom.” I said, ”You guys be safe.”
Thorp lived with her mother and grandmother in the Bronx.
‘She was the apple of my eye,’ Thorp’s grandmother, Annette Davis, 69, told Daily News. ‘It was always just the three of us. The three of us were going to take a photo for a 70th birthday, and that’s not going to happen.’
‘She wasn’t a party animal type of person,’ her grandmother added, ‘She was an introvert. She was very homebodied. It’s such a loss to our family. It hurts so bad.’
Thorp’s death comes less than a week after finance worker, Cameron Perrelli, 24, was killed when she fell down an airshaft between two apartment buildings in the East Village around 3:30 a.m last Saturday.
Perrelli was partying with about 20 people on the roof of 200 Avenue A when she tried to climb onto the roof of 202 Avenue A and lost her balance, according to witnesses
Perrelli, who lived elsewhere in the East Village, had been drinking at the ‘over-crowded’ roof-top party, which was thrown to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Local groups faulted realtors for allowing revelry to occur on the limited space rooftop.
A sign on the deck wall near where police say Perrelli fell warns people to remain 10 feet from the edge.
