A dramatic deejay threatening to throw himself into the East River actually went through with it after a passing stranger encouraged him to do it. Luckily, he wasn't hurt. “I didn’t go to sleep last night, and I was feeling kind of sad because I got ditched by a girl," said Philippe Treuille, who managed to swim from Houston Street to East 26th Street before he was rescued by NYPD divers. He told them he "just wanted to go swimming." He is doing well, and it's unclear if he actually wanted to commit suicide.
