A 25-year-old medical intern jumped out of the window of a New York Presbyterian Hospital facility on Friday morning.
According to the Post, the unidentified man jumped out of his apartment window on the 20th story of the Helmsley Medical Building, a residence for hospital workers and a guest facility for the hospital near East 70th Street and York Avenue. Though his body was found on a third floor landing at around 9:20 a.m., he may have jumped sometime overnight.
An NYPD spokesman had no information about this incident, and New York Presbyterian did not respond to request for comment.
Earlier this week, Sean O'Rourke, a recent graduate of the NYU School of Medicine, jumped to his death from the top of his former dorm building. The school says they'll be offering counseling service to students, faculty and staff.
