Wall Street exec dies in fall from NYC window

A Wall Street executive has died in a fall from his fifth-story New York City apartment.

Police say Keith Mastronardi fell to his death while trying to open a window so his cigarette smoke wouldn't bother his three young children.

Police say the 31-year-old man lost his balance and fell to the courtyard of the East 74th Street building on Sunday.

Mastronardi was the head of USD Exotic Derivatives at Vyapar Capital Market Partners.

The New York Post reports that the Department of Housing Preservation and Development will inspect all the windows in the building. City law requires that all windows in apartments with children under the age of 10 have window guards.

HPD told the Post it had not received any complaints about the building.
