Police sources reported that a 63-year-old man leaped to his deἀth from a luxury Lower Manhattan building on Thursday (20 July), a day after two elderly men jumped to their deἀths from separate buildings further uptown.
At approximately 10:30 a.m., the senior reportedly jumped from the roof of the 63-story 50 West St. building near Rector Street in the Financial District.
The man was discovered unconscious and unresponsive on the ground, with injuries consistent with a fall from an elevated position, and pronounced deἀd at the scene, according to the police. He was not identified immediately.
Do you know that a suspect in Florida opened fire in a Walmart in Florida City, wounding two and kἰlling one? The incident occurred at approximately 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19th. Supposedly, two individuals were shot, one in the foot and the other in the abdomen:
The penthouse observation terrace offers panoramic views of Battery Park and the World Trade Center complex. The building was designed by the late German-American architect Helmut Jahn, and the interior was designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen.
His passing follows that of 91-year-old Marine veteran Harold Tekel, who jumped from 200 Central Park South on Wednesday — possibly after realizing he “couldn’t save” his ailing wife, according to authorities and his daughter.
According to police, just hours earlier, another man plunged to his demise from the sixth floor of a nearby building. The unidentified 66-year-old jumped from 160 West End Avenue shortly before 4:30 a.m. and dἰed at St. Luke’s Hospital, according to police.
