A couple committed suicide by jumping out of a window of a New York City office building together in desperation over their inability to afford health care.

The incident happened early Friday morning in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan – just a block from the Empire State Building.

A 53-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman jumped out of a ninth-floor window of the 17-story commercial building on the corner of Madison Avenue and 33rd Street around 5:45am.

Their bodies were covered with white sheets once police arrived at the scene, shutting down the entire block to investigate.

The couple left behind suicide notes in a ziploc bag, that also included their IDs. Police have not released their names yet, but a photo obtained by the New York Post shows part of the letter, and it identifies the woman as Patricia. The note was titled ‘We had a wonderful life’.

A law enforcement source who spoke with the Post said the woman’s note said: ‘Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them’.

The man left one behind too, which read: ‘We both have medical issues, we just can’t afford the health care.’
