EXCLUSIVE: As witnesses below watched in horror, a dog jumped to his death from the roof of a five-story apartment building in Bogota today.

A Bogota police officer scooped up the brown Pomeranian mix and rushed him to Ridgefield Park Animal Hospital.

A veterinary technician there pronounced him dead, however, saying that he’d broken his back in the fall.

The anguished owner was grief-stricken after being contacted by a local animal control officer.

The dog apparently got loose in a hallway of the Palisade Avenue building overlooking Route 80 ( above ) and scampered to an open door on the roof.

Witnesses said neighbors and emergency workers were rushing to the building when he jumped just after 1:15 p.m.
