A 71-year-old woman was seriously injured after a woman fatally jumped from a Manhattan building and landed on her yesterday.

Police say the incident happened around 4 p.m. Friday when an unidentified 56-year-old woman jumped from a 3rd floor apartment window at 903 First Avenue, near East 51st Street. "I turned and saw her as her head hit the concrete," witness Andre Ferrier told the Daily News. "One of the worst things I've ever seen."

That woman fell on top of a 71-year-old woman, whose name hasn't been released. "Just blood, blood everywhere, profusely gushing out of her head," Ferrier said of the scene. "There was a pool of blood so large on the steps it was hard to believe that came from someone. It was just unbelievable." The pedestrian was taken to Cornell University Hospital, where she is listed in serious but stable condition.

The woman who jumped from the apartment was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she died.
"She was a very sweet woman, very sweet, and she used to come in and sit down and talk," neighbor Ann Reilly told ABC about the jumper.
