A mattress apparently flew off a rooftop terrace on Broad Street by Exchange Place Tuesday lunchtime. It landed on top of a college student, who was poleaxed.
It is not know just how badly the student was hurt, although he is said to have been taken away by ambulance.
A reader told Gothamist.com: 'I watched this whole thing go down from my office window. The mattress caught my eye and I watched it fall all the way down and land on this poor guy.....It must have flown off a rooftop terrace at least 30 floors up, as I work on the 24th floor and saw it come down from above'.
