On may 1, 1947, About the Same time my Knuck was leaving Milwaukees production line a 23-year-old woman named evelyn mchale lept from the observation deck of the empire state building. "He is much better off without me ... I wouldn't make a good wife for anybody," she wrote on a note, then crossed it out. evelyn landed, 86 floors below, on a parked united nations limousine. a photography student named robert wiles heard the crash and snapped this photo four minutes after her death.

Totally amazing and utterly tragic with a touch of romantic flair that absolutely wasn't there when it happened. But she looks so beautiful and peaceful laying there.
This image blows me away... thanks for posting it.
