The Empire State building is somewhat of a magnet for those who want to make a dramatic end to their life. The latest victim the building has drawn is a 21-year old man. There isn’t much known about him at all. He jumped during a very business time though. It happened during rush hour when tourists and New Yorkers alike were out in abundance.
What is the fascination with jumping off buildings? Does it make the jumper feel free while getting to check out on life at the same time? Sort of like bunjee jumping without the cords, but the spirit is there. But, the thing about the Empire State building is it’s romantic appeal. Too many people jump there because they connect it to some dramatic idea.
There has been more than 30 people to jump since the bujilding was opened. Read about the incident here.
