Cinderblock Jumper!

11/18/2008:

It appears that a man tied a cinder block around his legs and jumped into the Hudson – somewhere in the area of 3rd and 6th along Sinatra drive. As overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel.

From the sounds of it – the man was either retrieved from the water – or never jumped – and is not in immediate danger.

Hey, it helps us keep all things in perspective.

Just when you thought your taxes were too high, your job prospects too low and your neighbor ripping you off by adding two floors to his house, you realize it could be worse.

Diving into the Hudson with a block tied around your leg with an audience is a pretty loud cry for help.

Thanks for the reality check.

Uh oh… here come the comments calling Hoboken411 disrespectful for posting a story about something like this.

There’s some guy who gets drunk and does this type of stuff on a fairly regular basis. He always fights with the people that try to save him.

NO IDEA if this is the same guy though…
