Leaping Lawyer

Garry Hoy, a 38-year-old lawyer in Toronto, Ontario, fell to his death on July 9, 1993, after he threw himself against a window on the 24th floor of the Toronto-Dominion Centre in an attempt to prove to a group of visitors that the glass was “unbreakable.” The glass did not break, but popped out of the window frame. For his unusual death, Hoy was recognized with a Darwin Award in 1996.
