A 30-year-old Mother who barged into her childrens’ father’s Harlem apartment on Saturday — violating an order of protection — fell to her death from the fifth-floor window just as cops arrived, police said.

The woman entered the apartment on Lenox Avenue at around noon, prompting the man’s roommate to call police, cops said.

As police entered, the woman suddenly went out the window.

Officers do not believe she was pushed.

The children, ages 10 and 11, were in the apartment at the time, but it was not clear if they witnessed their mom’s death plunge.

Mother Of Baby Who Died In House Fire Left Kids Alone As She Worked As Adult Entertainer

A mother from Milwaukee whose 1-year-old daughter died in a house fire last weekend left her 3 young children home alone while she was away in Fond du Lac working as an adult entertainer, a criminal complaint filed on Thursday morning stated.

Quintella Owens, 31, has been charged with Child Neglect Resulting in Death, a felony, and two other misdemeanor counts of child neglect.

The woman now faces more than 26 years in prison.

According to the complaint, Owens originally told police officers that her sister was supposed to be watching the children and never showed up. After further investigation, police say they determined that was a lie.

Firefighters responded to the family home which is located near North 28th Street and West Meinecke Avenue on Saturday night.

Quamyiia Owens, who just celebrated her first birthday in December, was pulled from the home by a firefighter but later died at a hospital.

The baby’s 10-year-old and 4-year-old siblings were able to make it out of the home safely. The complaint said their mother finally made it back to the home at 12:20 a.m., several hours after the fire took place.

According to the complaint, the children said they lit incense by using the stove and then threw it into the trash can. Investigators believe that is what initiated the fire.
