    News: While Fleeing Police, Mans Jumped to His Death

    It's a tough way to learn about depth perception in the dark.

    The man ran through the ramp, out a door and onto a Interstate 394 off-ramp. He ran about 100 yards down the ramp and jumped a cyclone fence. Then he leaped over a concrete barrier and fell several stories to a parking lot below. Police believe the man was trying to escape and misjudged the distance to the ground, police Sgt. William Palmer said

    It wasn't the jump that killed him, it was the sudden stop.
    As has been noted before, not much good comes from nightclubs and bars at 2 A.M.
    Mr. Yang caused his own situation when he fled from the police...Oh well.:

    Maybe the old axiom should include not only look, but be able to judge distance, befor you leap.
