Authorities say 21-year-old Nicholas Diblasi of Park Ridge was found sitting on the floor near Macy’s, dazed and seemingly intoxicated at about 12:30 p.m.

Diblasi told cops at the scene that he jumped over the second floor railing, which is approximately a 20-foot drop, on a dare because a friend doubted he would do it.

The daredevil was taken to Nyack Hospital and treated for a minor leg injury.

Diblasi has been charged with reckless endangerment, as he jumped into a “well-trafficked” pedestrian area.
