Bergen County investigators are looking into two incidents where women jumped from a high-rise senior living building in Fort Lee this week.

In the latest incident, emergency responders rushed to 475 Main Street after receiving reports of an injured person at approximately 2:30 p.m.

Rescue crews arrived at the scene found an unidentified woman laying on the ground in a pool of blood after she reportedly jumped several stories from the building.

Medical personnel pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

According to a statement released by police, on Sunday, officers were called to the same building, Malcolm Towers, senior living apartments, before noon, to investigate reports of a person who jumped from multiple floors of the building.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene found a severely injured unconscious and unresponsive 81-year-old woman lying on the ground after she fell 14-stories from the building according to police.

A request for public information to Malcolm Towers administrators went unanswered.

The incident remains under investigation.
