A banker at Merrill Lynch fell from his 26th-floor apartment window to his death after taking a handful of shrooms on Sunday morning.

According to the New York Post, 23-year-old Alex Lagowitz took four grams of the magic mushrooms and was found on an outdoor patio on the third floor at Windsor Court on East 31st Street and Lexington Avenue.

It’s still unknown if Lagowitz deliberately jumped or if he accidently fell.

According to sources, Lagowitz, who was originally from Livingston, NJ, was an analyst at Merrill Lynch since June of 2015.

After police found mushrooms inside of the apartment, Max Kaplan, Lagowitz’s roommate, was detained for criminal drug possession.
