Something happens and I'm head over heels

MorbidCuriosityFilter: I just saw this
on my friend's blog, which is an odd coincidence, because only the other day I was wondering: How many people have jumped or fallen off of the spiral walkway at the Guggenheim Museum in NYC?

I imagine this is the sort of thing the Guggenheim doesn't like to talk about. But are there are any incidents on record? I've spent a fair amount of time there (my company has a corporate membership that allows me to get in free), and I've always found the walls along the outside of the spiral to be disturbingly low -- I'm guessing probably not up to contemporary code standards.
Whether or not anyone's deliberately jumped, it's hard for me to believe that no one has accidentally fallen over. Anyone have any leads on this?
