The 17-year-old daughter of the U.S. Ambassador to Thailand plunged to her death from a Midtown luxury high-rise early Friday morning, the Daily News has learned.

Nicole John fell out of a 25th story window of the Herald Square Towers on W. 34th St., landing on the building’s third-floor overhang, according to police sources.

She was killed instantly.

John’s father, Eric John, was appointed U.S. Ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand in 2007, according to the State Department website.

Investigators believe Nicole John was part of a group of young revelers who were partying in the 25th-floor apartment near the Empire State Building in the moments before the 4:15 a.m. tragedy, according to sources.

“They’d been drinking,” said Robert Pena, the building engineer at the Herald Square Towers, who saw the pack of partygoers walking through the building’s lobby just before 4 a.m.

“They’d invited some other people back from a club,” Pena said.

Though the circumstances of John’s death remain under investigation, witnesses told cops they thought she was leaning out of the window for some fresh air when she tipped forward and fell, the sources said.
