In a city with so many skyscrapers, we can understand the allure of jumping off the top of one to end it all. It's faster than pills and cheaper than buying a gun. Unless you happen to land on somebody's parked sports car. And live.
And that's exactly what happened to New York resident Todd Magill, who jumped 40 floors to what probably should have been certain death, only to wind up with only a broken leg, collapsed lung and shattered ankle. Oh, and he freaking totaled Guy McCormack's 2008 red Dodge Charger (above). Well, technically it belonged to McCormack's wife. Hopefully he's not in trouble with the missus.
Magill jumped off the rooftop of the West End Towers on 52nd Street, where he lived a year ago (apparently security's a little lax), and reached a drop speed of 126 miles per hour before crashing McCormack's car. He's expected to make a full recovery. Aside from the embarrassment, that is. That's probably going to stick around for a while.
