If I wanna snuff myself out at an iconic building, I want my ride to last a bit longer.

Saw the photos on another website earlier this morning. truly a shame, though. He should have jumped from a different part of the building and gotten more distance.

It's hard to do with the setbacks. I remember a guy taking a header off the top of Carew Tower in Cincinnati (50 stories), but he only made it down about 20 before splatting on a setback. At least he was interesting, and videotaped the whole thing. The camcorder didn't survive, but the tape did and made the usual rounds.
