Man Jumps from Peninsula Hotel

A 40-year-old Florida man jumped to his death from the Peninsula, one of Manhattan's most luxurious hotels. He leapt from the sun deck on the 22nd floor and landed on a Cadillac Escalade that was parked across 55th Street. The car's driver said he was waiting for his passenger in the car when he heard a “loud boom” and saw that his “passenger side was crushed in from above.” “I was in shock,” he said. “I had never seen a body like that, it was horrible. I just stood there staring at it until someone pulled me away.
