Man Commits Suicide by Lying Down in Middle of Busy Manhattan Street
A man committed suicide by lying down in the middle of a busy East Harlem roadway, authorities said.
Christopher Costa, 36, was killed just before 11 p.m. Tuesday when an SUV struck him at the corner of Madison Avenue near East 115th Street.
A surveillance camera shows Costa walking into the middle of Madison Avenue before lying face down in the roadway.
Two cars swerved to avoid him, before a third vehicle, described as a gray SUV, ran him over and dragged him a short distance before leaving his gravely injured body in the road.
