A young man has reportedly leapt to his death from the roof of a high-end Manhattan hotel.
The New York Post reports that a delivery person en route to a neighboring office building saw the body of an unidentified man outside the Royalton Park Avenue Hotel near 29th Street just before noon on Monday.
A number of witnesses reportedly saw the man jump and called 911.
“I was shocked,” the delivery person who saw the body told the New York Post. “I’ve never seen that in my life. Terrified. It was crazy.”

A front-desk attendant reached by phone at the hotel declined the newspaper’s request for an interview, saying only “It’s very sad.”
