A nude and suicidal woman leaped from her fifth-story window in northern Manhattan on Saturday morning — but her life was saved when she landed two stories down onto an air conditioner.
Emergency Service Unit cops were able to coax the woman out of killing herself and pull her back into the building.
“I think God just did this thing,” one witness said of the
The late-morning drama unfolded along the brick side of an apartment building on Marble Hill Avenue in Marble Hill.
At first, “She wanted to jump out, but she didn’t,” the witness, neighbor Dahiana Rosario, 31, told The Post.
“At the beginning, her mom was holding her,” and trying to pull her inside, Rosario said.
“And she lost her hold,” Rosario said of the mother.
The unclothed woman then fell on top of an air conditioner jutting from a third-floor window above the building’s courtyard.
“She was sitting there,” Rosario said. “That’s where she stayed, thank God.”
Perched on the air conditioner, the woman began shouting in English and Spanish, Rosario said.
“She was saying that God is coming and everybody has to be better people, and we have to love each other,” Rosario said. “She was saying God loves us . . . and God loves everybody . . . and clean your house of bad things, bad energy.”
Neighbors called the police. They also put pillows and sofas outside beneath the air conditioner to cushion the woman’s fall in case she jumped.
The woman attempted to fight her rescuers, but they managed to pull her back in through the window.
Rescuers clothed the woman and then carried her from the building on a stretcher.
She was taken to North Central Bronx Hospital, where she will undergo a psychiatric evaluation, according to police.
The woman, whose name was not released, is not expected to be charged with a crime, law-enforcement sources said.
Earlier Saturday, an emotionally disturbed 36-year-old woman was pulled from the East River by firefighters after another apparent suicide attempt.
The woman had leapt into the waters from Grand Ferry Park near Grand Street in Williamsburg at about 6:45 a.m., cops said.
The FDNY’s Marine Unit No. 6 patrol boat spotted her, and its crew soon scooped her from the water.
But once she was on the boat, the woman broke free and jumped back into the water, witnesses said.
Pulled back on board a second time, she jumped right back in.
The woman was taken to Woodhull Hospital for observation.
