Man Commits Suicide Hours After Getting Married

This is just sad -- and selfish.
A Bronx groom hurled himself into the Harlem River over the weekend — just hours after exchanging marriage vows with his longtime love. Fernando Brazier, 28, took the fatal leap after leaving a suicide note for his bride, Trudian Hay, at the front desk of the Radisson Hotel in New Rochelle, where the couple and family members spent the night after celebrating their wedding. “He said [in the note] he couldn’t take it anymore, and to take care of the kids,” Brazier’s sister, Shawna Weeks, told The Post. “He left his ring in the envelope.” Police sources said Brazier’s note told Hay that he could be found at the bottom of the river, not far from a Pathmark supermarket and Dyckman Street on the Manhattan side. Witnesses said the just-married groom walked out of the Radisson and into a cab sometime before 9 a.m. Sunday. He made his way to 55 Richman Plaza about 15 minutes away in The Bronx, where he jumped either from a building or the promenade behind it, police sources said. An FDNY Marine unit found Brazier’s body in the waters near Roberto Clemente State Park, slightly upstream from where he’s believed to have jumped, around 3 p.m., the sources added.
