Natalya Jimenez fell five stories. She was reportedly playing a game, jumping from roof to roof with friends.

Police told WABC after a resident asked the girls to get down from the roof, Natalya fell as she was leaving.

"My daughter was afraid of heights. ... So, I think foul play is involved," Natalya's mother said.
