A woman died when she fell off an escalator inside the famed World Trade Center Oculus early Saturday while reaching to grab a hat her twin sister dropped, law enforcement sources said.

The victim, whose name was not immediately released, fell over the side of the escalator while reaching for the hat and plunged about 30 feet around 5 a.m., sources said.

She died at the scene.

The $3.9 billion Oculus opened in March after years of construction and delays. The strikingly designed white marble transit hub provides connections between New Jersey's PATH trains and New York City's subways and contains a shopping mall.
