This is a true New York story. A suicidal 26-year-old man was saved from a jump from the ninth floor of an apartment building by a pile of uncollected trash.
The man landed on the trash, which went uncollected during the recent blizzard.
This could present an interesting defense for supervisors recently accused of buying beer and getting drunk during the storm. Their actions may have actually saved a life. If the streets had been plowed, the garbage would have been collected. If the garbage would have been collected, this man would have died. Thanks fellas.

Dumpster diving takes on a whole new meaning for this lucky character.
Jump to the dump….

Ain’t it the truth…
Pure luck. The contents of the dumpster are key. There’s a selection of videos below . . .
I guess this person must really be depressed now,realizing his situation and to him the jump would end his misery.Waking up in a hospital with people who are total strangers caring for you like they have known you all their lives must really be eye opening to this person.
