BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.

According to Beverly Hills Police Department Lt. Lincoln Hoshino, the 53-year-old died after leaping from the building in the 400 block of Camden Drive.

Hoshino said the woman had surgery at the building and had stayed overnight before heading to the roof and threatening to jump.

He said crisis negotiators spoke with the woman for several hours while authorities deployed airbags at the base of the building and closed off surrounding streets.

It was not clear what caused the woman to commit suicide, Hoshino said.
