Giant homeless man tries to kill himself outside CBS 3

A giant homeless man ran into the street and hurled himself in front of a moving car on 16th Street near Hamilton last week after attempting to gain entry into the offices of CBS 3/CW Philly 57. A CBS 3 camera rolled and station management watched in horror as the deliberately-injured man was put onto a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance. The female driver from New Jersey was very shaken up by the incident, which did not end up covered on the air by CBS 3. The station confirms that an isolated incident took place that was dealt with expeditiously and cautiously, referring to the man being escorted out of the building before running into the street. Police Lt. Frank Vanore said that the man was injured and treated at Hahnemann University Hospital. Vanore confirmed reports that witnesses on the scene told police that the man had said he was trying to kill himself.
