According to the information given by the Police, Coe had been drinking with a friend before the incident took place. A neighbour told that news corporation that a beer was spotted next to him and they called the ambulance thinking that he was drunk.

Coe, who worked as a growth-marketing associate at Grubhub, had posted several photos of himself trying dangerous stunts one of which was him dangling his legs over a skyscraper in Manhattan, that had grabbed his mother’s attention who then commented, “What the hell are you doing?”

According to a Daily Mail report, a spokesperson from his company said in a statement, “We are deeply saddened by this news, and our thoughts are with Jackson’s family and friends during this difficult time.”

However, Coe is not the first thrill-seeker who has died this way. Back in 2016, extreme photographer, Christopher died at the age of 25 when he fell while surfing an F (Subway Route in New York) train.
