As she locked the door, a large chunk of concrete molding came loose and fell on the elderly woman’s head, police said.

Arriving cops administered CPR to Singer, and she was taken to the Maimonides hospital in critical condition. She was later pronounced dead, authorities said.

Police have notified the Department of Buildings, which will now conduct its own investigation.
