    A 24-year-old man slipped and fell to his death as he and a friend tried to scale the Four Seasons Hotel in Midtown Manhattan on Wednesday night using the building’s scaffolding, the police said.

    The man, Conner Cummings, of Rockaway, N.J., and his friend had reached the 51st floor of the 52-story hotel around 11:15 p.m. after getting access to one of the building’s roofs and clambering up scaffolding attached to an air shaft.

    The pair were trying to take photos of the skyline, the police said. Mr. Cummings and his friend, 18, were on opposite sides of the scaffolding.

    But rain began falling hard over Manhattan, and the friend, who was not identified, told investigators he suddenly heard a bang. Mr. Cummings had disappeared, the friend told the police. He found his body on a maintenance catwalk 30 to 40 feet below.

    Yeah - so hard to find a tall building in NY where you can get a good picture of the skyline...

    Too late to enter into the 2015 Darwin Awards?

    24 and 18 years old

    it's weird for a 24 year old to hang out with a kid who's 18 right?
