Man fell from the void from a “social support” building in Times Sq, New York

An unidentified man died this morning when he fell from a social “support” housing building in Times Square, the theater and tourist center of NYC, the authorities reported.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene around 6:50 a.m. on 43rd Street near 8th Avenue in Manhattan, the FDNY said. The building “The Times Square” is managed since 1991 by the non-profit organization “Breaking Ground” (formerly known as Common Ground).

It has 652 units and originally there was a hotel. Currently “combines permanent affordable housing and supportive services on-site for low-income or formerly homeless adults, people with serious mental illness, and those living with HIV/AIDS.”

It is not known how high it fell from and no other information was immediately available. Two bellhops from the Westin Hotel across the street said that the NYPD closed off the block while their officers investigatednarrowed New York Post.

I looked for help

At the end of November, a construction worker died after falling into a vacuum in a building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan (NYC). And in August an immigrant actor hit her wife with a hammer before throwing her from a 6th-story window in the Bronx and then jumped himself, while her two children were at home.
