A suicidal man plummeted nine stories and survived in midtown Sunday when he landed on a trash heap that had piled up since last week's blizzard slammed the city, officials said.

Vangelis Kapatos, 26, jumped from his father's apartment in The Whitby building on W. 45th St. near Eighth Ave. a few minutes before noon.

Cop sources said he had tried to take his life a number of other ways immediately before leaping.

He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center, where he was in critical but stable condition early Sunday evening, police said.

"He landed on a garbage pile," one official said. "That's the only reason he's alive."

Cops said Kapatos' injuries were not life-threatening.

The Sanitation Department suspended trash collection after the Dec. 26 snowstorm that paralyzed the city. It was expected to resume tomorrow.

Residents of the building, where Kapatos lived with his father since childhood, said the garbage had been kept in the basement since the storm hit.

Workers had moved the foul-smelling heap - roughly 100 plastic bags - out onto the sidewalk Sunday morning.

Kapatos' family is originally from Greece, neighbors said.

Did he jump because he is a Giants fan or because his name is Vagelis?

Probably wasn't a good move for his folks to call him "Vag" for short.

49 states (yes, including Hawaii) have snowfall as of now. Can anyone guess the 50th state that doesn't have snow?

Yup, it's Florida. Still waiting to see snow on my home turf. Even as a flurry. But hey, that's not the only thing Florida isn't represented in, take a look at the NHL all-star rosters

I'm kind of surprised you guys don't have snow, isn't the SE getting pounded right now?

EDIT: According to weather.com, I am incorrect. Which is strange, because I'm pretty sure they were the ones who told me otherwise earlier.

Eh, I know there was flurries in Jacksonville a few weeks ago but certainly nothing gets really passed that northern boarder.

We're still freezing our asses off though, it's in the 30s (although by mid day it's usually back to the comfort zone in the 50s). I know, 30s might not be much to complain about but it's just awful for us here in Florida.

Worst of all Housing thinks they can just save money by keeping the AC on through all of this. I wake up and it's 59 degrees in my room! Cheap bastards.

I live in/between Delray Beach and Orlando. Jacksonville is 2/4.5 hours North.

Also, that post was of yesterday. It snowed in mid-late December in Jacksonville. But as of yesterday, snow was on the ground in 49 of 50 states.
