    A man was seriously hurt in a plunge at the World Trade Center transit hub in lower Manhattan Tuesday.

    Officials got a call about a person plunging three stories into the Oculus around noon Tuesday. Photos posted to social media showed law enforcement officers surrounding a man on the ground below the balcony. 

    Port Authority officials say the man, in his 40s, jumped over the railing from the East staircase. Firefighters estimate he jumped some 50 feet.

    Witness Eduardo Suarez said the man appeared to be moving his arm after he landed on the ground.
