Is this really beautiful?

Yes, this is a real photo of a real event that happened back on May 1, 1947, when 23 year-old Evelyn McHale wrote a poignant note to her fiancee (‘He is much better off without me. I wouldn’t make a good wife for anybody’), left a small collection of personal items on the observation platform of the Empire State Building, then leapt to her death, landing, as fate would have it, on the roof of a United Nations limousine. This remarkable, untouched photo was taken in the immediate aftermath by a passerby – photography student Robert Wiles – and ran shortly afterwards in Life magazine. Years later, Andy Warhol commemorated the event with a typically striking artwork, pictured below.
