A WOMAN fell to her death during a boozy party in New York City after reportedly trying to jump across the roof of the next building.

Cameron Perrelli, 24, was among revelers on the roof of an apartment building in the East Village at around 3am on Saturday when cops said she lost her balance and slipped through a gap.

The finance worker was rushed to Bellevue hospital but did not survive.

Cameron’s uncle Michael Perrelli told the New York Daily News that they have heard different accounts of how Cameron died.

He said: “We got three stories. That she was jumping from one building to the next, and we heard that she was walking on an air condition vent, and then somebody just said she slipped.”

Cameron’s dad Louis Perrelli said the finance worker wasn’t a risk-taker, DailyMail.com reports.

He branded the 24-year-old an angel as he recalled the moments when they used to watch the New York Rangers and Yankees.

In a moving Facebook post, Michael wrote: “Sad day, today, I lost a piece of my heart – my beautiful niece was taken by god to heaven. She was so beautiful in mind, body, and soul.

“It is so hard to understand God’s reason for taking Cameron. She had so much to offer the world.

“I hope that the Angel he has taken from us will forever shine through and bring the strength to all who had the pleasure to have had a chance to be a part of her life.”

Another uncle also paid tribute to his niece.

He said: “You were/are a shining star I will always cherish. I am lost without you in my life. You’ve always made me proud of your accomplishments.”
