A man plunged nine stories from a high rise in Jersey City, NJ, landed on a BMW — and miraculously survived, according to stunning photos and a witness.
The man crashed through the roof of the Beemer parked below 26 Journal Square at 10:20 a.m. on Wednesday, then stood up with a broken arm and asked “What happened?” onlooker Christina Smith, 21, told The Post.
“I heard a big boom and I didn’t think it was a person at first,” said Smith. “The back window of the car just busted out — exploded. Then the guy jumped up and started screaming. His arm was all twisted.”
“I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ I was shocked. It was like being in a movie,” said Smith, who works in sales and had been strolling to a nearby McDonald’s.
She quickly called 911 then took jaw-dropping photos and videos of the aftermath, including graphic footage of the man screaming in pain with upper-body injuries.
He was rushed to a hospital by ambulance and his condition was not immediately known Thursday.
Police are now investigating the incident, including whether he jumped, fell or was pushed, according to www.nj.com.
People who have plunged from much lower heights have died or killed others in recent months, including a man who jumped from a parking garage in San Diego, Calif in September and landed on a woman below — killing them both.
In November 2019, a 7-year-old Bronx boy survived a harrowing nine-story fall from his family’s apartment but then later died as a result of his injuries.
On Wednesday, Jersey City Police briefly shut down roads near the high rise, including the Journal Square PATH Station and Hudson County Community College.
Jersey City Police Department did not immediately return calls Thursday.
