Random Ridiculousness: Man Attempts To Commit Suicide By Jumping Out Window, Lands In Big Pile Of Garbage Instead

- By Bossip Staff

This sounds like a case of “when trying to off yourself goes wrong”:

A despondent West Side man took a leap out of his ninth-floor window this afternoon — but was saved when he landed onto a huge pile of garbage that’s been collecting since New York’s devastating post-Christmas blizzard, officials said. Vangelis “Angelo” Icapatos, 26, apparently attempted his death leap at 12:04 p.m. from a building on W. 45th St. between 8th and 9th avenues, police said. Icapatos landed on his back and was taken to Bellevue Hospital.

A worker at the building said Icapatos is a resident at the building on the ninth floor. “I can’t believe the garbage broke his fall,” said an astounded neighbor, Ingrid Suprock, 26, who lives next door.
“I guess the trash saved the guy.”

For the first time in a torturous week, what has been going all wrong, finally went right. Collecting trash has been piling up around the city — as sanitation workers try to catch up with snow removal that has bogged down the city since the day after Christmas. But with Mother Nature helping to melt the 20 inches that got dumped in the devastating blizzard, the city has been turning its attention to the gathering garbage — untouched since the storm. “It’s been out here all week,” Suprock said of the trash out in front of the victim’s building, and others along the block.
