A man remains in critical condition after falling off of a building in Journal Square last Wednesday in what city officials described as a suicide attempt.

The man, who is 31 years old, jumped off of a nine-story window at 26 Journal Square and landed on a car, according to city officials. He was taken to a local hospital, where his injuries are considered life threatening.

A police investigation is underway, but according to reports, the man initially refused to identify himself.

Onlookers told the New York Post that the man crashed onto the roof of a car and then fell onto the ground where he was injured but conscious.
