New York, Sep 1 (ANI): In an apparent suicide attempt, a young man in New York leaped from the 39th floor of a West Side building, crashed through the windshield of a sports car and survived.

"My leg! "My leg!" Thomas Magill screamed after landing in the red 2008 Dodge Charger, witnesses said.

Magill is in critical condition undergoing surgery for two broken legs.

"He came down feetfirst at like 100 mph," the New York Daily News quoted a witness Andrew Petrocelli as saying.

Petrocelli is a maintenance worker across the street from where Magill jumped.

"That's a miracle if I've ever seen one. He should be a goner. It was like that movie 'Unbreakable.' That was this guy: unbreakable," he added.

Guy McCormack, 40, of Old Bridge, N.J., owner of the crushed Charger, was doing construction work across the street when his car broke Magill's fall.

He believes Magill survived on the wings of divine intervention. Holding up a set of crystal rosary beads he retrieved from inside the car, McCormack exclaimed, "Here's what saved him!"

Magill's father, Thomas Sr., sent friends a text message, asking them to "pray for my son."

"We haven't been told anything," the father said as he waited for his son to get out of surgery at St. Luke's Hospital.

Magill, whose family lives on Staten Island, was once listed as a resident of the building, West End Towers at 75 West End Ave.

Neighbors said he studied music at Fordham University. (ANI)
