New York (CNN) — A 35-year-old woman on a first date plummeted to her death early Thursday morning when she fell from the balcony of her 17th floor New York City apartment.
Jennifer Rosoff went outside on her balcony around 12:50 a.m. Thursday to talk and smoke a cigarette with her date when the balcony’s railing broke, according to police.
It’s unclear whether Rosoff leaned on the balcony, causing it to give way.
She landed on a second-story construction scaffolding of the building and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Rosoff’s employer, online advertising startup TripleLift, released a statement expressing sorrow at the news of her death.
