NEW YORK — Catherine Hurd, the 46-year-old wife of a British diplomat, died early Saturday morning after she reportedly jumped from the roof of her building on East 84th Street, the Associated Press reported.

Hurd’s husband, Thomas, is part of the British Mission to the United Nations, headquartered here in New York.

Hurd was pronounced dead at an area hospital. She had been due to return to England next week when Thomas’s mission here was over.

The New York Post reported that neighbors called Hurd “a happy mother of five.” There was no word on why she apparently took her own life.
