A naked woman dangling from a fourth-floor window of a Manhattan apartment building let go and plunged one story Saturday — but somehow landed safely on an air conditioner unit jutting out from the window below.
Eye-popping video taken by a neighbor shows the woman’s plunge and unlikely landing.

A quick-thinking group of neighbors grabbed a blanket, stretched it out and held it aloft, standing in the concrete courtyard three stories below her, to catch her if she fell from the air conditioner.
Police arrived at the apartment building on Marble Hill Ave. near Fort Charles Place in Marble Hill about 11 a.m. and found the woman still sitting on the unit.
Officers from the Emergency Service Unit struggled with her before managing to pull her back inside the building.
Police clothed the woman, put her on a stretcher and took her to North Central Bronx Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, officials said.
