Man, 23, 'jumps to his death from 23rd floor of NYC apartment building'

A MAN has jumped to his death from an apartment building near the United Nations headquarters in New York City, police say.

The victim, a 23-year-old male, plunged from the 23-story Tudor Tower near East 41st Street and First Avenue just after midnight on Monday.

In a statement to The Sun, an NYPD spokesperson said officers were summoned to the scene at 12.10am this morning to reports of a male "falling from an elevated position."

He was pronounced dead by police at the scene with injuries consistent with a fall from a great height, the department said.

It's currently unclear which of the building's 23 floors the man fell from.

He has not yet been named as of midday Monday, pending next of kin notification.

It's unclear if the death was accidental or suicide related, with an investigation on going.

No criminality is suspected at this time, the spokesperson for the NYPD said.
