The daughter of  legendary “60 Minutes” broadcaster Harry Reasoner killed herself, according to authorities.

On Monday, Mary Ray Reasoner committed suicide at the same hospital where her father died.

The 60-year-old woman jumped from the third floor of the Norwalk Hospital parking garage, police said.

A manager at a Norwalk Bed, Bath & Beyond told the Stamford Advocate that Reasoner was a longtime customer service employee there until last year.

According to public records, Mary Reasoner’s 80 County Street, unit 11-D condo was subject to a foreclosure sale on Jan. 10, 2015.

Her father Harry was a prominent journalist known for his witty coverage of much of the 20th century, working largely for CBS and founding “60 Minutes” in 1968.

He died at Norwalk Hospital in 1991 at the age of 68.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.
