New York Police Department officers Save Suicidal man from fifth floor of Manhattan parking lot

A suicidal and soaking-wet man was hauled to safety by New York Police Department officers on Friday after he plunged himself from the fifth floor of a Manhattan parking lot.

The dramatic rescue, captured in these frightening photographs, took place at about 7pm at East 30th Street and Fifth Avenue, according to The New York Post, just after heavy rain pummeled the city.

Police had been trying to talk the depressive man down from the edge for about 15 minutes before he suddenly launched forward.

Det. Sean Mulcahy said the man had told him 'life wasn’t good for him anymore', according to the newspaper.
