wasnt there the girl and her man friend out on the balcony smoking, she was sitting on the top of the rail, and the man said shouldnt do that, her response was, i do this all the time.

I'm pretty sure native New Yorkers fall into the subway tracks all the time. A teenage girl was killed a year or two ago at an E train station in Queens.

Once again, someone takes a fall while taking selfies.

She is in serious condition but expected to live.

She will probably make it to the Selfie Injury and Death wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ies_and_deaths
Prolly no parapets on the roof.

10-20 years I rarely see roof top parties, these days I frequently see young people on rooftops having parties. I guess it's a good way to air out if they are smoking pot.

As for picture taking, there are websites that have dozens of tragedies of people falling to their death or getting injured for taking pictures on the edge.

Another one fell off a roof. He wasn't taking photos, just adjusting his seating position...on the ledge.
