A man who booked a helicopter tour of the Orange County coast jumped to his death this afternoon in a possible suicide.
A 60-year-old man was rescued from the waters near Balboa Pier around 1 p.m. and rushed to a hospital where he later died, Newport Beach police told City News Service.
Chuck Street, the father of the man flying the helicopter, told The Daily Pilot that a passenger on the tour jumped out of the helicopter mid-flight. Street hadn't spoken to his son Corbin yet, but authorities explained what happened. The passenger showed up alone even though he paid $310 for a 30-minute tour for two. About halfway into the flight, the passenger pushed himself out the door while Street's son struggled to grab him, ripping his shirt off in an attempt to save him.

How often does this Scheiß happen?
Maybe he saw how much his plan went up under Obamacare?
Suicide is bad enough, but I really don’t understand the need some people have to make others witness the horror. It’s cruel.
Probably better than sent to the soylent factory through Obamacare.
I agree. Unfortunately, it happens all too often.
Because suicide is a selfish and COWARDLY act.
The other one was in Florida, leaping out of a Cessna.
Maybe he feared another government shutdown.
“Maybe he saw how much his plan went up under Obamacare?”
Living in the Obamination could cause most anyone to commit suicide.
Sudden Jump syndrome...
Wow, just read the small plane one. Rest in peace.
Suicides may be off the charts this ‘holiday’ season...
That guy was just stretching his legs, they aren’t too bright in Miami.
When Wall St crashed in 1929, stock brokers jumped out of buildings in several major cities. Today, under Obama, people jump out of airplanes.
If you want a parachute,you can keep your parachute. Period!
> Living in the Obamination could cause most anyone to commit suicide.
I think someone on FR pointed out that suicides have gone up 450 % since Obama took office. I’ve seen it somewhere.
more military members are dying from suicide than from combat, even though obama’s pointless war and his PC ROE are providing ample opportunity for combat deaths
Yes, they have.
My husband of 40 years was one of them.
It’s not the fall that kills you but the sudden stop at the end is a beyotch.
