Man turns on pet cam just as friend leaps to her death

A 51-year-old woman who was apartment-sitting leaped to her death Monday morning — as her horrified pal watched in real time from a dog camera inside the Midtown home, sources told The Post.

The woman — a California resident with a history of psychiatric problems — threw herself from the building on Park Avenue near East 36th Street around 8:50 a.m., sources said.

The apartment owner tried calling her while on his way home from the airport but after getting no answer, he cued into his dog cam. That’s when he witnessed her opening a window and jumping out.

The woman landed in a courtyard in the back of the building, sources said.

FDNY medics responded to the scene and declared her dead, fire officials said.

Her body was removed around 10:20 a.m.

Details about why the woman jumped were not immediately available. Sources said she didn’t leave a note.
