A man jumped from a 400-foot radio tower belonging to PRESS COMMUNICATIONS Hot AC WWZY (107.1 FM)/LONG BRANCH, NJ. He is the second person to do so this year.
NJ.COM reports, "SAMUEL STUBBS, of LONG BRANCH, said he saw a man climb midway up the red and white radio tower without a harness and jump off. 'I saw him sitting up there and then I saw him just take a step off the side of the tower,' STUBBS said. 'And then he just tumbled'. Another witness, EYVETTE BURGESS, of LONG BRANCH, said the man jumped at around 3p and was not on the tower for very long. 'He didn’t waste any time,' said BURGESS, who said the man hit one of the vacant buildings below after he jumped. 'Sadly, it didn't look it was an accident'."
