by

19-year-old Mathea Jon is in critical condition at Jamaica Hospital after she slipped and fell four stories while climbing down a fire escape in Queens. Jon and her friend Daniel Santiago, 20, were coming down from the roof of a friend’s building, where they had been listening to music and enjoying the view, when Jon slipped. Santiago said, “She reaches for the ladder and I hear a scream, I look over and I see her falling.” Santiago and another friend called 911 and rushed down to Jon, who was moaning in a puddle of her own blood. “God willing she pulls through,” said Santiago of Jon.
