Police Stop Man From Jumping From NBC’s 30 Rock

23-year-old threatened to jump from 70th story

Police helped rescue a man who threatened to jump from the 70th floor observation deck of NBC's 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan.

Officers arrived to find the 23-year-old man sitting on the ledge of a concrete pillar in the southeast corner of the deck, police told MyFoxNY.

It was unclear how the man reached the 70th floor, given the extensive security at the building. "Saturday Night Live," "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and other shows are filmed at the historic address, which lends its name to the NBC sitcome "30 Rock."

Police climbed out onto the ledge in harnesses to talk the man down. An NBC employee tweeted a photo of the incident (above). No one was hurt.

The man was taken to New York's Bellevue Hospital for psychiatric observation.
