Adam Silberman, Banker: jumps out of seventh-floor window following fight with building co-op over his poodles | Mail Online
"According to his father-in-law, Paul Lord Ender, the banker had been depressed after neighbors complained about the couple's dogs barking and playing in the lobby, prompting an ongoing battle with the co-op board. One dog had already been sent away, The New York Post reported.
Police also found 'crack paraphernalia' during a search of the couple's apartment at 860 Fifth Avenue near 68th Street, according to The Post. It wasn't clear, however, whether Silberman used the drug himself. A family friend of Silberman's, Michael Moss, insisted Silberman did not abuse alcohol or illegal substances.He said the banker's troubles were all down to his high pressure job and beloved pets.
'The stress was too much for him,' Moss told The Post, adding that his own daughter took one of the French poodles off the Silbermans hands last week."
But he survived the seven-story fall, albeit with serious injuries, because he hit an awning on the second floor. I thought that only worked in Jackie Chan movies.
