Man Jumps from 40th Floor and Lives

What a lucky break this guy had!  A New York City man who jumped 40 storeys from the rooftop of an apartment building on Tuesday has survived after crashing into a parked car.

Witnesses and police said Thomas Magill, 22, jumped from the highrise at West 63rd Street, crashed into the windshield of a Dodge Charger and landed in the back seat. He suffered broken legs and is in critical condition, police said.

The car’s owner, Guy McCormack, of Old Bridge, N.J., told the New York Daily News he’s convinced the rosary beads he keeps inside the Dodge saved Magill’s life.

Police are investigating why Magill jumped from the building but my guess is a suicide attempt.  It is just amazing how lucky some people are, I bet the chances of living from that fall are worse than winning the lottery two weeks in a row.
