Daughter of U.S. ambassador dies in a high-rise fall
Nicole John, daughter of U.S. Ambassador to Thailand Eric G. John, died early Friday morning after falling out of a high-rise Manhattan apartment building, according to local news reports.
The 17-year-old died after falling from the 25th story of the Herald Square Towers on West 34th Street, a few blocks from the Empire State Building, according to New York police sources cited by the New York Daily News. Investigators believe she was with a group of people partying in the building before she fell about 4:15 a.m. Witnesses told police that she leaned out a window for fresh air before tripping and falling.
Nicole John attended high school in Bangkok, according to her father's official biography.
Ambassador John has served as the top U.S. envoy to Bangkok since 2007 after serving as deputy assistant secretary of state for Southeast Asia.
