On December 29, two children threw glass bottles of alcohol from the 32nd floor of a hotel near Times Square, injuring a woman below. Due to the incident, the street had to be temporarily closed. The publication told more about what happened New York Post.

The loud sound of glass breaking in the street caused brief panic, as some passers-by mistook the sounds for gunshots.

“I understand why people thought it was gunshots. When something falls from the thirty-second floor and hits the ground, it makes a loud sound,” said a law enforcement source.

According to him, the offenders, girls aged 12 and 11, were living with their guardians at the InterContinental New York Times Square Hotel on West 44th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues at the time of the incident.

As a result, the 12-year-old student was charged with careless handling of dangerous objects as a minor, and the 11-year-old was not charged at all due to her age.

Sources said children threw glass bottles of booze out of a 32nd floor window shortly before 17 p.m.

Hotel workers say the bottles fell from the sky from Eighth Avenue, across from Shake Shack and the Satin Dolls strip club.

According to police, a 24-year-old woman was injured in the street and suffered a cut to the head. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital and is currently in stable condition.

Sources said the incident prompted police to temporarily close the street to conduct an investigation.

“It sounded like an explosion or gunshots,” one passerby told a police officer.

“Throwing a bottle from the 32nd floor can definitely kill someone,” said a bouncer outside Satin Dolls who narrowly missed being hit by the same bottle.

He called the children's idea "crazy."

The incident occurred just hours after New York City Mayor Eric Adams and The Times Square Alliance assured Big Apple residents during the annual pre-balloon and confetti drop safety check that safety would be a top priority on New Year's Eve.

Hotel guests apparently were inspired by the ceremonial confetti throwing and began throwing glass.

“The NYPD shut down the entire area for more than an hour,” said valet Clichy Pierre, 40, of Brooklyn, who works at the lot across the street from the hotel.

According to him, because of the incident, angry customers could not leave the parking lot.

The Shake Shack employee "looked like someone was trying to jump out of the window." She said workers were forced to shelter in place for more than three hours.

“I thought it was suicide. Everyone looked up when I went to work,” said 21-year-old Maria Vasketsova, a hostess from Sugar Factory.
