A man jumped from a six-story Midwood building on May 4 and is probably going to die, authorities said.

Emergency responders found him on E. 14th Street between Avenues R and S at 1:04 pm, a Fire Department spokesman said. Officials on the scene believe the man jumped from the third-floor fire escape, according a photographer who was there.

Paramedics took the man to Lutheran Medical Center, but he is likely to succumb to his injuries, the department spokesman said.

If someone you know exhibits warning signs of suicide, do not leave the person alone; remove any firearms, alcohol, drugs, or sharp objects that could be used in a suicide attempt; call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273–8255; and take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.
