Woman Falls To Her Death At WTC


LIVE IN EAST HARLEM, DAVE CARLIN, CBS 2 NEWS. NOW TO A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER WHERE A WOMAN PLUNGED TO HER DEATH OFF THE ESCALATOR. CBS 2 JOINS US LIVE WITH MORE ON THIS STORY. REPORTER: IT HAPPENED AT 5:30 THIS MORNING HERE INSIDE THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD TRADE CENTER. IT HAPPENED RIGHT ON THIS ESCALATOR OVER HERE BETWEEN THE SECOND AND THIRD FLOORS. 29-YEAR-OLD JENNIE SANTOS OF CARNEY NEW JERSEY WAS WITH HER TWIN SISTER WHEN SHE FELL SOME 30 FEET OVER THE SIDE OF THE HANDRAIL TO THE MARBLE FLOOR BELOW. SOURCES TELLING US THE VICTIM WAS TRYING TO SAVE HER TWIN SISTER JESSICA’S HAT WHICH SOMEHOW DROPPED OVER THE SIDE WHEN SHE LOST HER BALANCE AND FELL. A FREAK ACCIDENT INSIDE THE TRANSIT HUB CREATED AFTER 9/11 THAT JUST OPENED LAST SUMMER. IT HAD TO BE HORRIBLE FOR HER SISTER STANDING RIGHT THERE, YOU KNOW, IT’S JUST DREADFUL, YOU KNOW, IT’S JUST UNBELIEVABLE THAT SOMETHING LIKE THAT COULD HAPPEN. IN MY OPINION, I THINK THEY NEED TO BUILD THE WALLS HIGHER WHEN THEY CREATE THESE ESCALATORS. THE SAME THING HAPPENED AT SHAY STADIUM WHEN THEY REDID SHAY STADIUM, SOMEONE FELL OVER THE ESCALATORS. THE WALLS AREN’T HIGH ENOUGH TO PREVENT TRAGIC ACCIDENTS THAT HAPPEN LIKE TODAY. REPORTER: JENNY WAS A GRADUATE OF WILLIAM PATERSON UNIVERSITY. SHE WAS TAKEN TO BELLVIEW HOSPITAL. BUT IT WAS TOO LATE TO SAVE HER. THE FAMILY WAS TOO DISTRAUGHT TO TALK TO US ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED HERE THIS MORNING BUT ONE FRIEND TOLD ME JENNY WAS A TREASURE WHO WILL BE MISSED BY EVERYONE WHO KNEW HERMENT REPORTING LIVE AT THE WORLD
