Empire State Building Jumper 4/1307

  1. Horrible thing just happened. :sad:


    I work right across the street from the ESB... and my friend calls me around 3:30ish today.. saying that someone jumped.

    I look out the window... and there's a bloody mess on the sidewalk... apparently it was a severed foot... and then i look on the first terrace and i see a shoe...
    ... no huge mess on the street or anything.. so the body must've ended up somewhere else.

    :wtf::wtf::wtf:

    I'm still waiting for some kind of news story to show up on msnbc, but nothing yet!

    It's so f*cking horrible!! Traumatic!
    They won't even let us out of our building, they have it roped off.
     
  2. Holy ****, that's terrible...so sad. I feel sorry for the people he/she left behind.
     
  3. Wow. That's bad news.

    :shocked:
     
  4. How horrible... I wouldn't even have the guts to peer outside the window. Is there another way to exit your building without seeing the mess?.. sorry you;re stuck inside
     
  5. How horrible, we just went to the observatory open terrace at the Empire State Building, I just hope it was not an accident!!!!!
     
  6. That's awful! I feel so sorry for that person and the family/friends they left behind. They must have been going through some hard times to make them want to do something like that.
     
  7. i hope no one got hurt when the person landed..thats really aweful
     
  8. Oh NO! That's terrible. I can't stomach these types of things....
     
  9. I have no idea why but your post made me laugh momentarily......
     
  10. I doubt it was an accident..it is pretty well protected up there. These things, specifically at the ESB, happen on occasion. Now I understand why traffic was so bad when I was out a little while ago. Very sad indeed.
     
  11. ew...I couldn't handle seeing the aftermath.
     
  12. I had to laugh a little, too, but I knew what she meant. I think she meant she hoped he didn't feel any pain.


    Such a tragedy, though.
     
  13. very sad
     
  14. That is just awful. I saw a show once about a photographer who for one year took pics of a bridge in CA I think where people jumped - and one person (not sure if it was during that time) actually had survived a jump into the water and said he changed his mind in the middle of the jump - what a sad place for people to do such a thing...
     
  15. That is just so sad.
