If this guy is part cat, he definitely lost one of his nine-lives. The AP reports that a NYC man may have lived through a failed suicide attempt—all thanks to a Dodge Charger that happened to break his fall.

Although it is unclear whether or not the fall was an accident, what happened after he plummeted nearly 40 stories is amazing nonetheless. Guy McCormack’s Dodge Charger just happened to get between Thomas Magill’s body and the pavement this week, but McCormack’s doesn’t think it was a coincidence. He told the NY Daily News that he believes that the rosary he kept in the vehicle may have played a role in the miracle.

Dramatic photos show Magill trapped in the backseat of the Dodge after smashing through the rear windshield. Onlookers report that he screamed out “My leg, my leg!” as rescuers approached the scene. A nearby maintenance worker who witnessed the fall said it is nothing short of a miracle that he was carted off with only two broken legs:

“He came down feet first at like 100 mph…That’s a miracle if I’ve ever seen one. He should be a goner. It was like that movie ‘Unbreakable.’ That was this guy: unbreakable.”

The witness also said the landing made him look like a ‘stuntman,’ and called it ‘amazing.’

A quick search of his Facebook page turns up the line: “I hate my life,” which has prompted many to believe that the jump was in fact a suicide attempt.
