Prostie death jump as she flees police

- John Annese

A PROSTITUTE jumped to her death from a third-floor window while trying to escape arrest during an NYPD sting operation in Queens, cops said Sunday.

The 38-year-old woman was working in an apartment above a massage parlor on 40th Road near Main St. in Flushing on Saturday night when she agreed to perform a sex act for pay on an undercover officer, cop sources said.

She bolted out a window when the officer’s backup tried to enter the apartment and arrest her, cops said. Other officers posted outside watched as she plummeted to the sidewalk below about 9:30 p.m.

Medics rushed her to New York-Presbyteri­an Hospital Queens , where she died Sunday.

Her name has not been released, and the city medical examiner will determine her cause of death.

The woman died just one floor up from the site of a gruesome 2010 killing in the same building.

On Jan. 26, 2010, Huang Chen ended a yearslong campaign of harassment and terror against Qian Wu, 46, beating and choking her before carving out her heart and lungs.
