A week ago, midtown was held captive when a man ascended to the top of Rockefeller Center and threatened to jump. Thankfully, after a tense hour, police were able to talk down 23-year-old tourist Jorge (George) Ruiz. It turned out that Ruiz, who told police that he suffers from schizophrenia and that he was distraught that a book he wrote wouldn't be published, had attempted suicide twice before, and in an eerily similar incident, had once climbed Las Vegas' 1,149-foot Stratosphere Tower to do so. In the video below, you can see footage of Emergency Service Unit detectives leaping across the parapet to stop Ruiz before he jumped.
