A “distraught” 25-year-old man jumped twelve stories from an apartment building to his death in Yonkers, New York Monday night and tragically landed on an unsuspecting 61-year-old innocent bystander killing him as well.

โ€œThe incident appears to be a tragic situation and the investigation is ongoing,โ€ Yonkers police declared in a statement.

Both men died on impact at the scene on the roof of a concrete parking garage after the young man jumped shortly before 6 p.m. The tragedy occurred at the Cromwell Towers on Locust Hill Avenue and the two men did not reportedly know one another.

The investigation remained active on Monday night. Detectives interviewed witnesses and both mens’ family members. Officers also reviewed surveillance footage, but they do not suspect foul play.
