A suicidal woman, who was naked, leaped out of her apartment window but managed to survive when she landed on an air conditioner two stories below.

The woman, who has not been identified, jumped out of an apartment window in the Bronx on Saturday morning.

Emergency Service Unit officers ultimately persuaded the woman not to jump and take her life and managed to pull her back inside, according to the New York Post.

The woman reportedly tried to fight authorities off; however, they were able to get her inside, cover her up, and she was then carried out on a stretcher and was transported to a nearby hospital for psychiatric evaluation.

A police source indicated that the woman will not face any criminal charges. One witness reported that her mother was holding onto her when she lost her grip and fell.

When she landed on the air conditioning unit two stories below, she sat on it and started yelling in English and Spanish to onlookers.

Dahiana Rosario told the New York Post: “She was saying that God is coming and everybody has to be better people, and we have to love each other.”

“She was saying God loves us – and God loves everybody, clean your house of bad things, bad energy.”

Neighbors immediately called 911 and put sofa and pillows below the air conditioner in case the woman decided to jump again.
