Her son Luciano was found unresponsive near her by a pool on the sixth-floor terrace of the building – which also houses a busy shopping centre.
The five-year-old was rushed to hospital in critical condition as medics battled to save him – but he was later pronounced dead.
Police are investigating the deaths as a horrific murder-suicide.
Emergency services rushed to the scene at 8pm after receiving frantic reports from a member of Matos’ family claiming she was threatening to jump.
Devastated relatives said they saw no warning signs before the tragedy.
Stunned residents reacted with shock, with neighbour Patricia Lopez telling WSVN-TV how she reacted to the news by saying: “Oh my god”.
Another neighbor, Roberto Junior, said: “I asked the management and people from the building, but they weren’t allowed to say anything.
