A 21-year-old Yale University student is dead after jumping 86 floors to his death off the Empire State Building.
Cameron Dabaghi got past the 10-foot high fence on the observation deck of the building where he plunged to his death in front of horrified onlookers.
One witness described the scene to the New York Daily News saying,
“It was an explosion. His body was shattered and his sneakers were scattered on the sidewalk.”
Dabaghi left a suicide note in his dorm room apologizing and saying he planned to jump from either the George Washington Bridge or Empire State Building.
At least 34 people have jumped off the Empire State Building since it opened in 1931.
