A woman trying to grab a hat dropped by her twin sister fell to her death from an escalator at the World Trade Center’s soaring Oculus transit hub on Saturday.
The 29-year-old Kearny, NJ resident, identified by law enforcement sources as Jennifer Santos, was riding the escalator with her sister at about 5:30 a.m. when her sister lost her grip on the chapeau, law enforcement sources saw.
Santos fell 30 feet to her death to the main concourse, said the sources. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Her sister was taken to an area hospital, where she is being treated for trauma.
Port Authority police are investigating the incident.
