Man jumps to his death from the roof of the Trump International Hotel and Tower

A man leaped to his death from the roof of the Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York City Sunday morning.

The 41-year-old, believed to be mentally ill, was witnessed plunging from the building's 44th floor just before 8 a.m., witnesses told New York Daily News.

Emergency responders removed the body of Kyle Mulrooney roughly two hours after his death.
