Stressed investment banker miraculously survives 7th floor leap

Another Funny Dog

Sometimes it just ain't your time.

The New York Post reports that an investment banker and husband of a powerful Manhattan real-estate broker - who was distraught over an ongoing battle with his co-op board involving the family’s three dogs - jumped out the window of his seventh-floor Upper East Side apartment Sunday.

Paramedics rushed Adam Silberman who miraculously survived the plunge, to Weill Cornell Medical Center with 'multiple trauma' injuries, according to law-enforcement sources.

Silberman was in intensive care with several broken bones, and doctors put a balloon in his aorta to head off any potential clotting, according to his wife, Monique Ender Silberman, a broker at Town Residential.

Silberman’s father-in-law, Paul Lord Ender, said the banker had been depressed about a long-running battle with the co-op board at his swanky Fifth Avenue building at 68th Street.

Silberman, 47, survived his seventh floor dive only after he struck an awning on the second floor, which broke his fall, police sources said.

He works at independent investment bank Solas Investments.
