Horrified witnesses described hearing a ‘loud crash’ and seeing severed body parts strewn across the street after a man dressed in pajamas jumped from the roof of the 750ft Deutsche Bank Center.

The victim was cut in half when he hit the marquee of the Mandarin Oriental hotel before hitting the busy Manhattan sidewalk outside the apartment complex where Jay-Z, Cynthia Nixon and Gisele owned apartments. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Some witnesses said his arm was found next to blood spattered scaffolding across the road.

A woman who lives in an apartment complex next to the hotel said residents could hear the marquee shattering from inside their living room.

“We just heard a loud crash so we went outside to see what happened,” she told DailyMail.com.

The incident happened at the luxury glass twin tower on Thursday where apartments can sell for $19million

“The body had already been covered. But the head was separated from the torso. The arm was elsewhere. It was horrible.’

A hotel guest said the crash was heard from inside the lobby, residents who rushed to see what had happened were met with the horrific scene of shattered glass, blood and the body dismembered from the victim.

The man’s identity has not been released, but police sources said he was in his 30s and 40s.

He is not believed to have been invited to the hotel, which is on the top 19 floors of the 55-story Deutsche Bank Center.

The man is believed to have taken a service lift to the roof before jumping at 9:06 p.m. Thursday night, law enforcement sources said.

“He is seen on video entering the hotel, then taking the elevator to the top, heading to the roof and jumping off the roof,” NYPD spokesman Lt. Thomas Antonetti said.

Antonetti told People that there didn’t seem to be anything happening outside the hotel that caused him to go up to the roof, “like an argument in the street.”

Shocking footage from the scene on Friday morning shows two hollowed-out panes where the body smashed the marquee. A third pane is broken but still intact.

A nighttime clean-up operation quickly removed the distressing bloodstains and the body was removed. A cord had been put in place under the marquee to protect passers-by from falling shards of glass.

The incident happened in the prestigious right tower of 80 Columbus Circle, formerly the Time Warner Center.

Some witnesses said his arm was found next to blood spattered scaffolding across the road.

A woman who lives in an apartment complex next to the hotel said residents could hear the marquee shattering from inside their living room.

The dismembered body was quickly covered in sheets as witnesses rushed to the scene

Grisly footage showed the body covered in a blanket on the sidewalk.

Glass and debris could be seen around the corpse, which lay in the street outside the twin luxury glass tower that once housed CNN’s newsrooms and where apartments can now sell for 19 million dollars.

The New York Police Department told DailyMail.com that the identity of the victim is not yet known and the investigation is still ongoing.
