Man commits suicide by hanging himself in Central Park in New York
A man was found dead hanging by his neck this morning in a popular area of New York’s famous Central Park.
The victim, believed to be in his 50s, was discovered around 7:10 a.m. with a rope tied around his neck and to the gazebo at East Drive and East 72nd Street behind the iconic Naumberg Bandshell amphitheatre, it reported. New York Post.
He was unconscious and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say the man’s death is a case of suicide and do not suspect criminal activity. The man was not immediately identified.
Was the third case of suicide in New York parks in recent weeks. Last week, the body of an elderly man was found floating in the river in front of Starlight Park in the Bronx.
That finding came exactly one week after a man was found hanging from a tree in a Lower Manhattan park next to Pier 42 on the East River Greenway, Halloween morning.
Additionally, several bodies have been found this year in Central Park. In mid-October, an elderly man was found dead in a pond, days after the partially decomposed body of a young man was discovered floating in a lake near 79th Street and West Drive, with no signs of crime.
And last July the death of a Latino homeless youth was ruled a homicide nearly 10 months after his body was found with a noose around his neck in Central Park, giving the initial impression that he had committed suicide.
