NYC Man Breaks Legs Falling From 39th Story Of Building

A 22-year-old man fell off of the roof of a New York City high rise last week, but survived with the help of a parked Dodge. New York City Police say that Thomas Magill suffered serious injuries, especially to his legs, but surprisingly survived his fall on West 63rd St. in NYC by falling through the back windshield of a car parked on the side of the road.

The man is in critical condition at a local hospital with two broken legs and other injuries, while the owner of the car says that the miraculous survival was due to some rosary beads inside the vehicle. Police are investigating why Magill fell from the building.

In 2007, a New York City window washer also survived a comparable fall. This NYC fall also comes after a Brooklyn man fell onto a spiked fence from a building's balcony this summer.
