Tragedy struck at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City’s Times Square on Thursday.
Gothamist reports that, “A person dining at the Marriott Marquis said, “I was eating in the restaurant with my family when I heard screams and a loud thump.”
Joseph Seminara was visiting New York and was seen “climbing over a glass barrier to an elevator shaft” at the hotel. The 28 year-old was found at the bottom of the eighth floor elevator shaft a little before 4:00 PM and pronounced dead at the scene.
Gothamist mentions that “glass elevators ascend through the hotel’s soaring atrium from the main 8th floor lobby to the 48th floor.”
Based on the info, it’s probably safe to say that Seminara committed suicide. Sad…
