    An unidentified man writhes in pain on the projecting roof on 30th floor of the Empire State Building after leaping from a 33rd floor office window moments earlier, July 16, 1951. Police said he sceamed, "let me die-- push me off the rest of the way!" After emergency treatment he was taken to Columbus Hospital where he was in serious condition.

    A B-25 bomber slammed into the Empire State Building under heavy fog July 28, 1945, between the 79th and 80th floors. One engine shot through the building, landing a block away. 14 people were killed in the accident. The incident also inadvertently set a world record-- elevator operator Betty Lou Oliver survived a 75-story plunge in her elevator, a record which still stands.
