Man jumps off NY hotel roof during LA Angels’ stay
Police say a 39-year-old man jumped to his death in an apparent
suicide from the top floor of a luxury Manhattan hotel where the
Los Angeles Angels were staying.
Police say the man jumped around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday from the Le
Parker Meridien. He was not an employee or a guest and it wasn’t
clear why he was there, or why he apparently jumped.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia says pitchers Jered Weaver and Matt
Palmer were across the street at the time and witnessed the fall
and were shaken up by it. Neither pitched at the Yankees’ home
opener. New York won, 7-5.
The hotel has more than 731 rooms and suites that range in price
from $300 to $700.
