Video shows the jaw-dropping moment accused carjacker jumps off FDR Drive, landing next to unsuspecting women—real New Yorkers who immediately run away from the crippled suspect.

An alleged carjacker fell off FDR Drive as he tried to land in a crumpled heap on the ground — before three female New Yorkers did the most possible thing and walked away from the stunning scene.
New videos were posted on social media this week showing the bizarre July 11 carjacking spree when the suspect, identified as Ishmael English, 20, was seen fleeing the scene after stabbing Lyft driver Yadav Kumar Dhungel, 36, who was driving the Tesla unprovoked.
Surveillance footage shows English running across FDR Drive trying to carjack two other cars and diving head first through the back window of one car.
The thug was seen sitting on a ledge near a Manhattan Bridge overpass before hanging from the edge of the busy highway. He is seen with only one hand clinging to the concrete barrier, before falling 30-feet to the pavement and landing on three unidentified women.
As the English lay on the ground writhing in pain, the ice-cream-eating trio was stunned by the drama. They stopped for a moment, looked at the wounded man and then left and went about their day.

Seconds later English was seen hanging from an overpass near the Manhattan Bridge with only one hand on a concrete barrier near the busy highway.
The woman, who appeared to be engrossed in conversation while they were enjoying an ice cream, stopped what they were doing for a moment before looking at the crippled suspect and then walking away.
English was a passenger in the Tesla when he reportedly stabbed the Lyft driver repeatedly around 2:45 p.m., officials said.
The Lyft driver victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he underwent surgery.
English was arrested and treated for his injuries at Bellevue Hospital.
He was later charged with attempted murder, attempted robbery, reckless endangerment and four counts and one count of criminal possession of a weapon, the NYPD said.
Dhungel’s friends were appalled by the afternoon’s attempted carjacking and described him as ‘hardworking…a gentleman…and a family man’.
He was later listed in stable condition where he remains hospitalized.
