Couple jump to their deaths because they ‘can’t afford’ health care

A couple distraught over health care costs jumped to their deaths in Murray Hill early Friday — leaving suicide notes pleading for their children to be cared for, a law enforcement source told The Post.

The bodies of the man and woman, both in their 50s, were found on 33rd Street between Park and Madison avenues.

The woman had a suicide note in her pocket that said, “in sum and substance, ‘Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them,’” the source said.

The man also had a note in his pocket saying, “’We both have medical issues, we just can’t afford the health care.’”

Their identities were not immediately available.
