NEW YORK (AP) – A man jumped out the window of a law office on the 69th floor of the Empire State Building on Friday and fell to his death, police said.

Police responded to the midtown Manhattan landmark at about 2:50 p.m. after a 911 caller reported seeing a severed leg on 33rd Street. After closing the street between 5th and 6th Avenues, they discovered that the body had landed on a setback on the 30th floor.

Police identified the man as Moshe Kanovsky, a lawyer in his 30s.

In February 2006, a 21-year-old New York man jumped to his death after buying a ticket to its observation deck. Dovid Abramowitz jumped from a vacant office on the 66th floor of the 102-story building.

More than 30 people have committed suicide at the Empire State Building since it opened in 1931. The skyscraper reaches 1,454 feet to the top of its lightning rod.
