Just in case you thought the surreality of the US political debacle we are witnessing was too much, the NYPD releases a statement that stokes the fire of confusion. The New York Police Department is looking for two unidentified people who may (or may not) have parachuted on to a lower Manhattan Street. Private security guards reported seeing the skydivers land in front of the Goldman Sachs HQ at around 3am (which we could not help but note was the highs of the European session for Gold). The police noted it was unclear if they jumped from a plane or from a high-rise building (or from Bernanke's helicopter).
New York City police are looking for two unidentified people who may have parachuted onto a lower Manhattan street.
NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly said private security guards reported seeing parachutists land in front of the Goldman Sachs headquarters at about 3 a.m. Monday. The building is near the World Trade Center site.
Investigators are studying security videotape from the area. Kelly says footage shows two people with parachutes walking away from the spot.
Kelly says it's unclear whether the pair possibly jumped from an aircraft or from a high-rise building.
In June, police in Chicago said three men climbed to the top of the Trump International Hotel & Tower, North America's second-tallest building, and parachuted to the ground. They got away.
