Charges Pending For Sign Jumper

An emotionally disturbed Queens man is facing charges this week, after he jumped from a sign over the Queens Midtown Expressway, law enforcement officials said.

The man scaled an exit sign at 48th Street and Maurice Avenue, near the Long Island Expressway and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway merge, at about 11 a.m. on November 30, and jumped to the highway below, police said.

He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center where he was listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries to his legs.

Chargers were pending, an NYPD spokesperson said.
