    That old sinking feeling....

    This guy probably had it that day!....a gold medalist at the self cleaning gene pool event.
    SAN FRANCISCO A car burglary suspect plunged 200 feet to his death after he jumped over a wall on San Francisco's Telegraph Hill while trying to flee from police, authorities said.

    The unidentified man died early Thursday after police say they received a report that someone was breaking into cars on a city block near Coit Tower.

    Authorities say they attempted to arrest the suspect after they saw him getting out of a car. But the suspect ran and jumped over a wall apparently without realizing there was a steep drop.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Police said the man was a suspect in two burglaries.

    The sudden stop at the end of a 200 ft free fall can ruin your whole day.

    When? As he jumped over the wall and figured out it was a long way down or after he landed?
