Unfortunate Unfounded Rumor Of The Afternoon

We've received a bunch of emails and comments that there was an attempted suicide at the MetLife building above Grand Central (home to Barclays, among others) approximately 30 minutes ago. There are apparently a bunch of cops on the lower roof of the north side of the building. That's all we've heard, and don't see it reported anywhere. We hope it's not true, though it sounds like it might be.

A real estate executive flung himself out of a window at the MetLife Building Tuesday, falling to his death as onlookers watched, police and witnesses said.
The man broke the glass of a 17th-floor window and jumped out of the Park Ave. skyscraper about 4 p.m. and crashed on an outdoor landing seven stories below, said witnesses and police sources.
Police sources identified the man as Scott Miller, 36.
The office space belonged to CB Richard Ellis, an international real estate firm. According to the firm's Web site, Miller was hired in 2007. A company spokesman did not return messages Tuesday night.
The Miller family on Long Island would only say, "We have a lot going on."
