Man plunges to his death from Empire State Building
An unidentified man apparently committed suicide on Friday by jumping from the 86th floor observation deck of the Empire State Building after scaling the tall, spiked security fence that is supposed to prevent such acts. His body was found on the 6th floor landing.
Once again proving that no many how many barriers you put in someone’s way, if they are determined enough, there is no stopping them.
I don’t mean to detract from the tragedy of any loss of human life – it’s a tragedy for his family and friends, assuming he had any of either, and my heart goes out to them – but I still firmly believe that suicide is one of the greatest acts of cowardice a person can commit.
