    A NEW York City man who leapt 40 storeys from the rooftop of an apartment building has survived after crashing on to a parked car.

    Witnesses and police say 22-year-old Thomas Magill jumped from the high-rise at West 63rd Street yesterday, the New York Post said.

    He suffered just a broken leg, a shattered ankle and a collapsed lung after his 10.44am leap from atop the West End Towers on West End Avenue at 63rd Street.

    The guy that owned the charger that he landed on said he thinks the man survived because of the rosary he keeps in the car.
