GLENDALE (CBSLA) — A man jumped from a seventh-floor structure on Tuesday in an apparent suicide attempt at the Americana at Brand shopping center in Glendale, police said.

The jumper landed on a father who was walking with two children, according to police. Neither child was injured.

Both men were taken to Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center in Boyle Heights, where the jumper was later pronounced dead.

The 49-year-old man who was on the ground sustained non-life-threatening injuries

In a statement, Rick J. Caruso, the founder and CEO of Caruso, the company that owns and manages Americana, said that he was “heartbroken” over the incident.

“Everyone at Caruso is thinking about and praying for these individuals and their families. We are working with local law enforcement and will provide additional information, as appropriate,” Caruso said.
