The man who jumped to his death from the Empire State Building has been identified as a 21-year-old junior at Yale. Police say Cameron Dabaghi left a note in his dorm room apologizing and saying that he planned to jump from either the Empire State Building or the George Washington Bridge. The Austin, Texas, youth majored in East Asian studies, and his sister is a sophomore at the university, reports the Daily News.

"We are all deeply distressed by this news," Yale College Dean Mary Miller wrote to students in an email. (More Empire State Building jumper stories.)
