Police say two men are dead after one jumped off a building in an apparent suicide and struck another in Yonkers Monday evening.
Authorities say a distraught 25-year-old man jumped off the Cromwell Towers apartment complex at 77 Locust Hill Ave. and fell 12 stories onto the parking garage roof below— striking a 61-year-old Bronx man around 6 p.m.
Police say both men were pronounced dead at the scene. They say the Bronx man was visiting someone at the complex.
Investigators are reviewing surveillance video and interviewing witnesses.
"It's just a tragic set of circumstances. In this case, it's not one life that was taken but two. Both families are greatly distraught and impacted by what happened here,” says Det. Lt. Dean Politopoulos.
