Kenneth Freeling lived on the ninth floor of the Park Avenue building where he leapt. He flung himself off the roof in the morning and landed on the second-floor terrace. The New York Post spoke to a building resident who said she and her daughter were at the second-floor gym when they saw a man’s body hit the ground. The resident was the one who called 9-1-1.

“We were on the treadmills facing this when a man fell out of the sky and landed on the terrace,” the unnamed woman said. “I was looking at the TV and my daughter said, ‘Mom, a man just fell out of the sky.’ It was not pretty. She shook him and said, ‘Are you OK?’”

Freeling worked for Covington and Burling and was a former partner of Dewey & LeBoeuf. Police said that he had a history of mental illness and drug use.
