NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a 15-year-old girl who was hopping from rooftop to rooftop in New York City fell between buildings to her death.

Natalya Jimenez was found in an alley off a series of four- and five-story brick buildings in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. Police say she and two friends jumped at least three rooftops before they turned to go back to a building and she plunged to the street.

Her body was found at about 4:30 p.m. Friday after police received a 911 call of an unconscious person in an alley. She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
