Officials say a man plunged from a 42-story high-rise apartment building in New York City to his death yesterday, landing on the roof of a local high school.

The New York Daily News reports that the unidentified victim jumped from the Tribeca Pointe building around 4:23 p.m. yesterday afternoon before landing atop Stuyvesant High School. The 20-year-old was reportedly found unconscious and unresponsive, and emergency responders pronounced him dead at the scene. 

The school day had ended, but students were asked to leave the building while police conducted their investigation.
