Man plunges 39 stories, survives

September 2, 2010


— A New York City man who plunged 39 stories from the roof of an apartment building has survived after crashing onto a parked car.

Witnesses and police say 22-year-old Thomas Magill tried to commit suicide by jumping 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.

Magill 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.

I'm not sure if I should be happy for the guy or feel sorry for him!

It's epiphany time for Thomas Magill.

I have heard about coming down after being high but this takes the cake. The rosary beads did not save this young man as all gods are still upset set with us because of "the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way"
