      Reminded me of a certain Seinfeld episode.
      On a more serious note that roof looks smashed in and the selfish jumper is lucky no one was in the passenger seat.

      Well, 40 year old male is an average how many pounds?
      The fall was 22 floors, I think the vehicle did fairly well.

      “Hotel security came over and helped me out of the vehicle. I saw a man’s body. His body was separated at the waist. It was frightening, I can’t believe it happened,” the professional driver of 5 years said.

      Smashing! If the jumper hadn't filled up on pancakes, would have been a much smaller dent. Biohazard FTW!

      Well dead is dead.

      Once dead might as well worry about the car and cleaning up the unsightly mess.

      Are we supposed to stand over the bloody remains and mourn?

      What kind of reporting is this. The jumper is not identified throughout the article but they close with this:

      Martinez did not leave a suicide note behind, the sources added
      Who is Martinez?

      Escalade Platinum, a pricey ride to be chauffeured in. I wonder who the driver was picking up?
