An American man, who jumped from the 9th floor of a building in New Jersey, fell on a BMW parked below and miraculously survived.

According to the New York Post, the man fell through the roof of a BMW car parked below Journal Square in Jersey City, New Jersey, around 10:20 am on Thursday.

Christina Smith, 21, who witnessed the incident said: "I heard a load boom, and at first I didn't think it was a person.”

The man asked onlookers, “What happened?” She said he then jumped up and started screaming…

His arm was broken by the impact of the fall.

Smith quickly called 911, and she filmed the man who had fallen onto the car.

The video showed a man with his arm completely broken, lying on the road and complaining of pain.

Smith said I immediately reflected on the building that he must have jumped at first glance, it seems that it is a fairly tall building.

Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said that he was rushed to hospital by ambulance and was seriously injured.

"The police are investigating, but there is no circumstance to suspect a crime," she said.

"In recent months, all who have fallen from a height lower than this man have died," the local media reported.

In November 2019, a 7-year-old boy survived a fall from a nine-storey apartment, he added, but he also died of injuries.

Jersey City police temporarily closed roads in the area where the incident occurred.

The police said he is extremely lucky to survive the fall.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the man did not belong to the building and it wasn’t clear what he was doing there.

The police said he jumped from the 9th floor window.

The local media reported, "The jumper refused to reveal his name to the police and has not shown a cooperative attitude to the police investigation so far."
