A 35-year-old man jumped off the roof of a Court Square apartment building to his death last night.
The police were called to 42-77 Hunter Street at about 9:30 pm Monday and discovered the man lying face up on the street, according to an NYPD spokeswoman. The man was dead at the scene.
According to the NYPost, the man worked in the finance industry and had come from Canada for his job.
How sad. RIP
To the complete idiot who just posted a vile comment on the story thread on Facebook: Maybe just once in your life you could summon up have the class and empathy to hold back on your shitty little cellphone imagine how the family and friends of the victim might be feeling right now. Unbelievable that we’re sharing the neighborhood with despicable people like you.
Four pieces of shit actually gave the thumbs down? Let that sink in for a moment. What the hell is wrong with you people?
7 now. so sad. people have no soul
Most large news sources have dropped the comments sections because of the low life’s that tend to frequent them. Kind of like a car accident, it is hard not to look, but you will never see anything good.
These weren’t anonymous comments. These were people who openly commented on Facebook. It doesn’t occur to them that friends and family of the victim might read their comments. Amazing.
