Man dies after fall from Princeton parking deck

A man in his 20s from West Windsor is dead after jumping from the Spring Street Garage in Princeton in an apparent suicide on Sunday afternoon, police said.

Planet Princeton does not release the names of people who die by suicide without the permission of families unless there are circumstances that warrant naming the person.

This is the second time in six years that someone has jumped from the garage. After a man jumped in 2014, measures were taken to try to prevent such incidents and secure the garage.
