A teenager who was atop a 7-story building in 11th Avenue on Tuesday night fell; the boy, 16-year-old, was rushed to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.
It is not yet clear whether he intentionally got to the top of the building in an attempt to take his own life.
Paterson Police are investigating the incident before stating whether the attempt was a failed-suicide or some sort of a foolish accident on the boy’s part.
The incident unfolded at around 9pm last night.
Correction: a friend of ours on Facebook showcased a misunderstanding that could come out of reading the 3rd block of text, as a result we have edited the word “suicide” and replaced it with “failed-suicide”.
