The family of a 26-year-old woman who fell from the fire escape from a five-story building in Manhattan paid tribute to ‘an awesome young lady’

Tyler Marie Thorp, 26, fell from the five-story building at East 28th Street in Kips Bay on Friday.  

Family paid tribute to Thorp, who was the second young woman in a week to die after falling from a building in the city.

‘She was an awesome young lady,’ her mother Leslie Stewart, 51, told the Daily News on Saturday. ‘Very artistic. Very talented young lady… It was horrible. We had to identify her just now.’

Thorp lived with her mother and grandmother in the Bronx. 

‘She was the apple of my eye,’ Thorp’s grandmother Annette Davis, 69, told Daily News. ‘It was always just the three of us. The three of us were going to take a photo for a 70th birthday, and that’s not going to happen.’

‘She wasn’t a party animal type of person,’ her grandmother added, ‘She was an introvert. She was very homebodied. It’s such a loss to our family. It hurts so bad.’

The New York Post reports that Thorp fell from the fifth-floor fire escape into a courtyard at the back of the building and she was found unconscious by police, before being declared dead at the scene.

Thorp’s mother recalled her final conversation with her daughter before she took a cab with her friend to go to Manhattan the night she died. 

‘I was sitting right there on that couch,’ the mother told the Daily News. ‘I said, ”I love you, Booch.” And she said, ”I love you mom.” I said, ”You guys be safe.”

Thorp’s death comes less than a week after finance worker Cameron Perrelli, 24, fell down an airway between the two buildings in the early hours of Saturday morning at a boozy rooftop birthday party on the deck of an apartment building in East Village.

The NYPD said Perrelli might have been trying to jump to the next building when she fell down the airshaft between the 202 building and its neighbor.

They have since said they’re still investigating after an uncle said she might have simply slippe.
