Witnesses say 13-year-old jumped to his death

Witnesses say a 13-year-old Bronx boy jumped out of the window of a 21st floor apartment to his death Monday.

Friends of the boy, who is called Judah, say he wanted to play basketball outside, but when his mother said he couldn't, he went out to the apartment balcony and jumped to his death. Family members consoled each other Monday night outside the Tracy Towers on Mosholu Parkway.

Police do not suspect foul play in the teen's death.
