A New York City man who plunged 40 stories from the rooftop of an apartment building has survived after crashing onto a parked car.
Witnesses and police say 22-year-old Thomas Magill jumped from the high-rise at West 63rd Street on Tuesday. He landed in the backseat area of a Dodge Charger after crashing through the windshield.
He suffered broken legs. Police say he's in critical condition.
The car's owner, Guy McCormack, of Old Bridge, N.J., told the Daily News he's convinced that rosary beads he kept inside the Dodge saved Magill's life.
Police are investigating why Magill jumped from the building.
