July 9, 1993 - On this evening during an after-work party, a young lawyer named Garry Hoy was demonstrating how the windows in his 24th-floor office were unbreakable. He took a running start and threw his body against the glass. As he had done many times in the past, Hoy bounced harmlessly off the glass. Another group of lawyers arrived so Hoy repeated his stunt. This time, to everyone's horror, the pane of glass popped out and Hoy plumetted 24 stories to his death.
Hoy's fatal plunge is now a gold standard in the realm of urban legends.
