Thursday’s incident is the second reported death of a New York City Google employee in just over two months.

On February 16, Jacob Pratt, a 33-year-old partnership leader at the company, was found dead in his apartment. His death was ruled a suicide.

It’s also the second falling death in New York City this week. On Tuesday, a 20-year-old mother from Colorado fell to her death from a Times Square hotel.

Dezirae Andersen was found dead after falling from the roof of the OYO Times Square hotel on West 47th Street. Police said that she got into a physical fight with her boyfriend, Tyler Griffin, just before the fatal plunge.

Police were originally called to the hotel on reports of Griffin assaulting Andersen in her hotel room.

Andersen then fell from the building’s 10th floor, and landed on scaffolding above the street.

Police have since arrested Griffin, 24, and charged him with assault, reckless endangerment, and acting in a manner that could have harmed a baby.
