In 1947, Evelyn McHale leapt to her death from the Empire State Building.
Robert Wiles took the pic. Life published, saying:
"On May Day, just after leaving her fiancé, 23-year-old Evelyn McHale wrote a note. 'He is much better off without me ... I wouldn't make a good wife for anybody,' ... Then she crossed it out ... Then she jumped."
This photo is so mesmerizing. She crashed with such force that she smashed the car, yet her body is so perfect, ankles crossed, hand clutching pearls. Sad...
