At 11295 exposition Blvd. in Los Angeles CA 90064 on 5/2/19 at 12:00 PM, a homeless dude decided to climb crane at construction site – for whatever reason jumps off with all the grace of a professional high diver. His form could use some work but he absolutely stuck landing.
Thanks for the footage Mr.E, he is fortunate to have died from such height. The vagabond landing on his back forecloses his life. Fortunately for him because, the medical bill would have ended up killing him. Win-Win. Perhaps, he saw an half eaten grinder and took one small leap to get it and one giant back flop for mankind.
Life expectancy for Los Angeles’ homeless population is 48. (California’s, in morbid contrast, is 80.) This should seriously disturb the residents of Los Angeles, which for years has faced a severe homelessness crisis. According to a recent USC study on homelessness, “between 2010 and 2017, the number of homeless people across Los Angeles County went from 38,700 to over 55,000 — an increase of 42%.” It’s not hard to figure out why, either: a combination of soaring rents, stagnant wages (if you’re lucky enough to have a job), and personal debt makes it nearly impossible to live a financially stable life, nonetheless in one of the most expensive cities in the country.
