    Empire State Building Suicide

    Post by Steph on Wed Mar 31, 2010 2:55 pm

    The 21-year-old is thought to have climbed over the barriers on the 86th floor of the New York landmark, and landed on the pavement outside a branch of Bank of America during rush hour.

    Police were forced close a block of West 34th Street around the building, as his body lay at the northwest corner of the 102-storey skyscraper.

    The observation deck was not busy at the time of the man's death, which meant he could climb over the 10ft-high fence unchallenged.

    His identity has not yet been revealed but authorities believe that he was a student at one of the city's universities.

    A witness told the New York Daily News: "He came down in front of the Bank Of America. Boom! It was an explosion.

    "His body was shattered and his sneakers were scattered on the sidewalk."

    The building was constructed in 1931, and since being built, more than 30 people are thought to have committed suicide from it.

    Its observation deck has a glass enclosed area as well as walkways outdoors around all four sides of the building.
