NYC man plunges 40 stories, lands on car, survives

 

– Wed Sep 1, 6:49 am ET

 

NEW YORK – A New York City man who plunged 40 stories from the rooftop of an apartment building has survived after crashing onto a parked car.

 

Witnesses and police say 22-year-old Thomas Magill jumped from the high-rise at West 63rd Street on Tuesday. He landed in the backseat area of a Dodge Charger after crashing through the windshield.

 

He suffered broken legs. Police say he's in critical condition.

 

The car's owner, Guy McCormack, of Old Bridge, N.J., told the Daily News he's convinced that rosary beads he kept inside the Dodge saved Magill's life.

 

Police are investigating why Magill jumped from the building.

 

Magill isn't the only New Yorker to survive a high-rise fall. Window washer Alcides Moreno fell 47 stories from the roof of a skyscraper in December 2007, and doctors expected him to walk again.

 

 

wow! hard to believe he was able to survive that

I remember that, was in town then. Apparently, he and his brother both fell, and his brother hit a fence on the way down and, err, got cut in half.
