Earlier this morning, a 17-year-old girl fell to her death from the 25th floor of a building on West 34th Street. The victim is identified as Nicole John, the daughter of the U.S. Ambassador to Thailand, Eric John. The Daily News reports that she "fell out of a 25th story window of the Herald Square Towers on W. 34th St., landing on the building's third-floor overhang, according to police sources. She was killed instantly."
The incident occurred at 4:15 a.m. and it's believed that she and a group of other people were partying. The building engineer told the News, "They'd been drinking. They'd invited some other people back from a club." NY1 reports that they had been at Tenjune and "According to sources, a 25-year-old man has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child" (the News says someone was seen in handcuffs leaving the building with police).
The News adds that some witnesses told the cops that Nicole John may have been "leaning out of the window for some fresh air when she tipped forward and fell."
