US teen jumps to death from New York University building

An 18-year-old woman died after she jumped from the fifth floor of the six-storey New York University building in the US city on Saturday.

Police responded to a 911 call of a jumper down around 7:30 p.m. at NYU’s Barney Building on Stuyvesant Street, which houses the art department’s studios, classrooms and offices, reported New York Post.

The young woman was found outside of the building unconscious and unresponsive with severe trauma to her body, cops told the newspaper.

She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

It is still not clear whether she was a student at NYU.

“I just heard a thump and girl scream,” Justina Sung, 30, who was in her nearby apartment at the time, told New York Post.

“My roommate asked someone and someone said [they] jumped off and landed in that triangle area,” she said.
