The First ‘Caught On Camera’ Death
On June 23, 1938, Marion Perloff hurdled from the 11th floor of the Time and Life building in New York City and this was the first ever death video caught on camera. During the 1930s, television was not developed so only a few. Though the woman’s death was simply a suicide, the death was deliberated as a dark landmark everywhere in the US. The only people who saw the horrific pictures of the woman were NBC engineers at the third floor of the RCA Building.
