Baird was at the rooftop bar on Saturday night with her husband, who told police she had suffered from depression and was on medication.

The hotel's website shows photos of the bar, including what appears to be clear window-like barriers that would be difficult to climb over.

She hit the bus with such force that she left a substantial dent on the front of its roof before her body fell onto the street.
