A woman died in a fall from the rooftop bar of the W hotel across the street from the White House in Washington DC yesterday.
The woman, who was not immediately identified, plunged 10 stories to her death after witnesses say she climbed over the railing and desperately clung to the building before losing her grip. The woman had been drinking at the rooftop bar of the W, according to the Daily Mail.
The death comes one month after two women fell 5 floors when they crashed through a window wall while “play fighting” at the W hotel in midtown Atlanta. Model LaSahawna Threatt, 30, (pictured at right) died at the scene. Her best friend, Ciara Williams, 25, remains hospitalized with serious injuries.
Falling glass from a W Hotel in Austin, Texas this month prompted the closing of the hotel until further notice. The hotel’s management said 1,000 glass panes in the hotel’s balconies will be replaced.
The manager of the midtown Atlanta W told the Atlanta Journal that the incidents of falling glass from balconies at the W in Texas were “quite different” and “totally unrelated” to the incident in Atlanta.
Two lawsuits have been filed by family members in connection with LaShawna Threatt’s death.
