Man plunges 100ft from nine story building

A MAN who plunged 100ft from a nine-story building and smashed through the roof of a BMW has walked away with just a broken arm.

The 31-year-old crashed through a parked black Beemer only to get up and ask an onlooker “what happened?”.

Christina Smith, 21, captured the freak incident on her phone.

“I heard a big boom and I didn’t think it was a person at first,” Smith told the New York Post.

“The back window of the car just busted out — exploded. Then the guy jumped up and started screaming. His arm was all twisted.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ I was shocked. It was like being in a movie.”

Smith was strolling down Journal Square in Jersey City when the man smashed into the luxury car on Wednesday morning and immediately called 911.

“He was like, ‘What happened?’ And [I] was like, ‘You fell’,” she said.

“I was thinking, thank God, it probably helped that he had a fluffy jacket on.”

The man, whose believed to have fallen 100ft from an open window in the building, was rushed to hospital and was in a critical condition, Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said.

Footage shows the man lying on the floor with blood splattered over his ripped grey jacket, with his face mask still hanging onto his ear despite the fall.

Witnesses told the Post that the man – whose refusing to give his name and cooperate with the authorities – didn’t work inside the building and said they weren’t sure why he was there.

Mark Bordeaux, 50, works inside and was there shortly after the fall.

He said: “He fell into the car through the sunroof, then climbed out of the car and fell on the ground. He was trying to get up but people were trying to get him to stay down —’You don’t know how hurt you are’.

“So he stayed there until the police and ambulances came. He kept saying, ‘Leave me alone, I want to die.’

“You saw one of his arms was clearly broken, but he was conscious, he was moving.

“He wanted to die. That was his agenda. But God had something else in mind.”

Police have launched an investigation but don’t believe there were any “suspicious circumstances”, according to Wallace-Scalcione.

The man fell nine stories, or roughly 100 feet, and survived
