  1. Very sad, I hope he has a refuah shelaimah, Refuas hanefesh urefuas haguf bimhaira!
    Very dangerous those sloped roofs 4 stories up with ice on them no less. But of course such roofs don’t exist in Williamsburg.
    It’s quite obvious that he jumped and this cover-up will not help prevent such situations in the future R”l.
