NYC Man Plunges 40 Stories, Lands on Car, Survives

NEW YORK (AP) - 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.

I hope he wasn't trying to commit suicide due to the economy cause now he's gotta pay for that car he wrecked when he landed on it.  If, on the other hand, it was a banksters by Galee, I can only hope that the rest follow soon and that there are no cars to break their falls.

But we can dream... ~sigh~
