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.
