Yale University identified Cameron Dabaghi, a junior from Austin, Texas, as the man who jumped to his death Tuesday evening from the 86th floor Empire State Building observation deck.

 

"We are all deeply distressed by this news," wrote Yale College Dean Mary Miller in a message to students issued Wednesday morning.

 

Dabaghi was slated to graduate in 2011 and was an East Asian studies major. He has a younger sister, Andrene Dabaghi, who is also a Yale student, according to the Yale Daily News.

I wonder if you die on the way down because you loose your breath or when you hit the ground?

 

Falling at terminal velocity and breathing is not difficult.

 

Falling at terminal velocity, stopping instantly and continuing to breath is difficult.

It's not the fall that kills you, it's the landing.

 

Thats what I was afraid of. I thougt on the way down you pass out before splat. Someone had to take a pic of his body, and i'm curiose to see.

Terminal velocity can actually feel good sometimes. It's that wonderful natural sensational thing known as freefall. One can love the fall, but none loves the landing. I never experienced freefall myself before though. (the closest I got to it has been in a fast descending skyscraper elevator). THAT FEELS GOOOD!!!!!!

Go ride El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure. The G-forces are amazing on the drops! That'll give you a nice freefall feeling!

 

What bout Kingda Ka, @ six flags G.A? I'm too scared to get on those suicide missions.

To date, that has been the only Six Flags' ride I have now been on. It's always messed up.

That's the only major coaster I never got to ride - El Toro, but everything I rode, includes Nitro [3 rides] and Kinda Ka [2 times - first ride in the morning!]

Lol! Nah, it's perfectly fine [when it is running] It's the launch that scares you, but the climb and fall are nothing.

Yeah it sucks that it has problems. And it was down like all of last year from what i read. Hopefully they get it working fine this year.

Last ride I rode on one was the Superman in great adventures, never again. I only did it 'cause I was with my girl and it didn't look right with her going on it and me holding her bag at the finish line. But never ever again. :tdown:

Lol, you should ride the last row for the whiplash effect :)

Superman Ultimate flight? That's a shame. I do agree that type of coaster is near the bottom of my list, but I'd still ride it. It is a unique way of riding.

Yeah, problem is that the design is 'standard' at 3 of the '6 Flags' parks. But the one near LA - Magic Mountain's Tatsu coaster I read was really good. There's another kind of coaster at Sea World Orlando called Manta that should be just as good. Hopefully I'll get to ride Manta later this year. Roller coasters = ftw!

How did thread went from a suicide to riding roller coasters.:P

I've ridden the Superman in Six Flags, NJ.

 

The subject of freefalling reminded me of roller coasters, especially El Toro with the near-vertical drop that left me breathless. Great feeling. What a rush!

It was a rainy day. Little to no crowds in the observation area.

 

There were 7 people at the time on the observation deck, one of them tried to talk him down but he or she should have made an attempt to grab him as he was climbing.

 

Oh well another rich kid dies who had it too good in life, hopefully he is suffering in hell right now,LOL.
