Woman falls from fire escape during fight in New York City

Video captures the moment a woman fell from a Bronx fire escape while tussling with a man through a window — all part of a wild incident that later ended with the guy killing another person, police and sources said Monday.

Cops at first said 35-year-old Erica Morel just fell from a third-floor fire escape at the Marion Avenue building in Fordham Manor around 3:15pm Sunday, leaving her in critical but stable condition.

But police and law-enforcement sources revealed exactly why and how Morel plunged from the building — adding that the twisted incident appears to have led to a death hours later.

A police source said Morel is believed to have been feuding with another woman over money and drugs and went to the apartment of the lady’s boyfriend, Dwayne Murray, 29, to confront her there.

When the woman wouldn’t let Morel in, “that’s when Morel climbs the fire escape with a knife,’’ sources said.

“She’s banging on the window, causing it to break. Dwayne came to the window, she backed away, lost her footing and fell.”

Morel hit the fire escape one story below before belly-flopping to the ground, the footage shows.

She was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in critical but stable condition.

Murray was treated at the scene for injuries from the broken window — but that wasn’t the worst of it for him that day, the police source said.

One of the people allegedly hassling Murray was Curtis Nicholas, 37, a member of the Gorilla Stone Gang, a subset of the Bloods, according to cops.

Nicholas then turned up seven hours later fatally stabbed — and police have now charged Murray in his death, the NYPD said.
