A 25-year-old woman plunged off of an observation balcony near the top of the City Hall building in downtown Los Angeles Wednesday, landing on an air conditioning grate 30-40 feet below.

The woman suffered some type of medical emergency before she fell off of the City Hall observation deck, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

Authorities at the scene said the woman was sitting on a ledge outside of the Tom Bradley Room on the 27th floor prior to the fall. 

Firefighters were working bring her down from the grate where she landed to rush her to the hospital at 6:10 p.m.
