An elderly Brooklyn woman has died, after plunging out of her window and falling 10 stories.

It happened Tuesday afternoon at an apartment building on Ocean Parkway in Kensington.

Police say the 86-year-old woman slipped out while trying to shut the window.

She landed in a grassy area in front of the building.

The woman was transported to Maimonides Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

A neighbor who has known the woman for 20 years said she was a good, friendly woman.

Another said the victim would always go up and hug her when she saw her coming and going.
