Yesterday evening, a 30-year-old woman leapt to her death from the 20th floor rooftop bar in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. Patrons of the bar, who were there attending a corporate event, kept drinking after her death, according to the New York Post.
Witnesses told the Post that the woman, identified as Faigy Mayer, ran to the edge of the the 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar and crashed through through the bushes that surround the bar. From the Post:
Officials recovered two bags that might have belonged to the victim, a purse and a backpack.
It was not known if Mayer was connected to the party.
After the tragedy, some bar patrons still enjoyed table service at the establishment, where bottles can fetch as much as $300 each.
“There was a big corporate party up there and she kind of ran through them [the partygoers] and jumped,” witness Becky Whittemore told the Post. “They closed off the section where she jumped from. I think a lot of the people up there had zero clue what was going on.”
