Impaled on a Flagpole

Bobby Jackson, a 19-year-old from Buffalo, New York, committed suicide by jumping off of the observation-deck of the 28th floor of the Buffalo City Hall Building. During his fall a gust of wind blew him about 15 ft. out of his initial trajectory, and he was impaled through the back and out the chest on a 40 ft. flagpole sticking up from the roof of the building’s 4th floor landing.
