TWO women are recovering in hospital after one fell six floors inside a Sydney shopping centre and landed on top of the other.

A 32-year-old woman fell from the sixth floor of Westfield Chatswood straight onto a 42-year-old woman on the ground floor, police said.

Investigators had viewed security video footage of the incident, which happened at about 6pm yesterday, and there were no suspicious circumstances, police said.

The women underwent extensive surgery at Royal North Shore Hospital and are now in the intensive care unit.

A hospital spokeswoman said today the 32-year-old is in a critical condition and the 42-year-old is in a serious but stable condition.

THE condition of two women critically injured when one broke the other's fall in a Sydney shopping centre has improved.
A 42-year-old woman suffered massive injuries when a 32-year-old woman jumped from the sixth floor of Westfield Chatswood on Friday evening, in an apparent suicide attempt.

Both were critically injured and underwent extensive surgery at Royal North Shore Hospital on Friday night and early on Saturday.

A spokeswoman for the hospital today said the condition of the 42-year-old, from Lindfield, had improved significantly since her surgery.

"The woman who was fallen on had some simple procedures and is now much better," the spokeswoman said.

"She's now stable and has been transferred out of intensive care to a general ward."

The 32-year-old, from Chatswood, remained in a critical condition with "quite significant injuries" but was expected to pull through, she said.

A New South Wales police spokeswoman said it was too early to say whether she would be charged over the incident.
