“The rear window of the car broke out – exploded. Then the guy jumped up and started screaming. His arm was all twisted, ”the newspaper quoted Smith. “I thought, ‘Oh my god!’ I was shocked. It was like being in a movie ”.

The young woman called 911. An ambulance took the man to a hospital. According to a Jersey City spokeswoman, the 31-year-old was still in critical condition on Thursday.

According to initial investigations, the man did not work in the building and it was unclear why he was there. According to the police, he refused to give his name and, according to the New York Post, did not cooperate.
