The Beautiful Suicide

Life Buzz

On May 1, 1947, Evelyn Francis McHale, anĀ American bookkeeper, jumped to her death off the Empire State Building. She jumped from the 86th-floor Observation Deck.

This photo was taken by Robert Wiles, a photography student, only minutes after the suicide. Famous artist Andy Warhol helped popularize the image by using it for inspiration for his Suicide (Fallen Body) print.
