A 60-year-old woman jumped from the roof of her luxury Midtown building while holding her tiny lap dog Friday afternoon, leaving both dead, according to cops and law-enforcement sources.

The unidentified Manhattan woman had just finished her last meal on top of the 46-story apartment complex where she lived — The Victory at 561 10th Ave. near 41st Street in Hell’s Kitchen — when she leaped with her little pooch, a rescue dog, just before 1 p.m., police and sources said.

The woman left behind a handwritten note talking about stress — then just walked to the edge and jumped, sources said. Bottles of medication were found in her apartment, sources said.

“Looks like depression,” a source said.

Local resident Dimitri Wallace told The Post he was sitting on the roof of the building across the street from The Victory moments before the woman jumped when a paper airplane note floated by and landed next to him.

“You are blessed” was written on one of its wings, while “Stay strong. You’ll get through this!” was on the other, he said.
