Detectives from The Hudson County Prosector’s Office are making their way to the scene of a jumper-down incident that resulted in fatal injuries in Jersey City a short time ago.
Officials said just before 7:15 a.m., emergency responders and rescue crews rushed to 175 2nd Street after receiving reports of a person injured at that location.
When rescue crews arrived, they found a male victim lying on the ground, severely injured.
The unidentified man was pronounced dead at the scene after jumping more than 13 stories from the roof of the high-rise, officials said.
The incident is in its early stages of the investigation and no other injuries have been reported.
