The family of a Teaneck rowing coach who fell to her death off the World Trade Center Oculus is suing the Port Authority, the New York Post reports.

Jenny Santos, 29, was an assistant coach at the Teaneck-based Bergen County Rowing Academy (BCRA). She reportedly fell 30 feet to her death from a top-tier escalator after a night of partying with her twin sister, according to multiple reports.

The legal claim filed in Manhattan Superior Court by Santos' mom, Maria Santos, says the 29-year-old fell from “an unprotected, unsecured, and dangerous and hazardous opening," the New York Post says.

Later that year, a man attempted suicide from a balcony in the Oculus, the report says.
