A man fell to his death from the roof of a Coney Island apartment building, shortly before noon today.
The above photo began circulating on Facebook about an hour ago. The man landed in the courtyard of Trump Village Building 5 at West 5th and Neptune Avenue.
A Facebook commenter who claims to have been the first on the scene said the victim lived in Building 4 and was 33 years old.
Commenters believe the incident was a suicide, but Sheepshead Bites is awaiting confirmation from the police department.
Reader Elina N., who lives across the street from the incident, texted Bensonhurst Bean at 11:30 a.m. this morning, writing, “I heard a loud thump outside my window and realized someone just might have jumped out the window and died across the street from me.”
Facebook user Steven B. writes: “crazy thing is we get about 1 jumper a year on average..”
