Building climb ends in fatal fall – Darwin wins again!


Spidey he ain’t. Or wasn’t.

New York police said a man fell 11 stories to his death while trying to climb down to his girlfriend’s apartment from the top of her building.

Investigators said Steven Wright tried to climb from the roof of the building to his girlfriend’s 13th floor apartment at about 5:30 a.m. because he was locked out after an argument, the New York Daily News reported.

Police said Wright tied his shoelaces and belt to a pipe and tried to inch down to the top-floor window of the apartment belonging to his girlfriend, Lanecca Austin, 31, but he instead fell to a second-floor patio roof.

Officers said they do not suspect foul play in the incident and Austin, who was asleep with the TV on, was not aware of Wright’s fall until police knocked on her door.

Cops woke her up and told her what happened.

Not the best part of the gig.
