Lower East Side Jumper Drama Caught on Camera [Video]

Posted on: June 24th, 2011 at 3:40 pm by

Earlier today, NYPD rushed to 1 Essex Street, where a woman was threatening to jump from the rooftop.  Police rolled out the inflatable landing pad, and were able to grab her before leaping.  According the the Village Voice, the jumper is in her twenties.

Shadinyc was there capturing all the nail-biting drama, and recorded the following video.  So head on over to the site and check it out.  It’s pretty frightening to watch, so fair warning.

*Video removed at the request of Shadinyc. Looks like the Post picked it up.
