Man Survives Empire State Building Fall

 

 

 

 

 

” Tourists taking in the view of the city from atop New York’s Empire State Building were shocked when a man fell from the observation deck, then landed a floor below.

Nathaniel Fimone fell from the observation deck of the Manhattan skyscraper just before midnight Wednesday. He fell from the 86th floor and landed on a catwalk just below it, between the 86th and 85th floors.

According to eyewitnesses who spoke with the New York Daily News, Fimone, once he was on the catwalk, swung his legs into the air as if he meant to drop again.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Decision by 2 Officers to Open Fire in Busy Midtown Leaves Bystanders
Wounded”

   “As the two officers confronted a gunman in front of the Empire State Building on a busy Friday morning, they had to make a snap
decision: Do they open fire in the middle of Midtown?

  From a distance of less than 10 feet, the officers, Craig Matthews and Robert Sinishtaj, answered in unison; one shot nine times and the other seven.

  Investigators believe at least 7 of those 16 bullets struck the gunman, said Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman. But the officers also struck some, if not all, of the nine bystanders who
were wounded.”
