Well, at least he didn't suffer. I suppose if you're going to top yourself, that's a good way to do it. Can't have been particularly pleasant for the people situated on the landing on the sixth floor, though.

Yeah, must be fun to see the guy falling ... =|

I'm impressed - as I remember, the fence keeping people in up there looks like it'd be quite difficult to climb. If I ever jump off a building, I'm going to do a cannonball.

thats sad.

at least he got one last thrill while jumping.

I can't believe you can actually think like that.

Be happy for him. If he was suicidal his pain is over. Be sad for his family/friends if he left any behind.

I can't be happy for someone who just killed himself. His pain is over, and maybe he finds peace but still. Killing yourself is not a thing you just do on a sunny day. Think about what he had been through, what had been going through his mind before he got up there and looked down. Face death. and then do jump. that is just awful. And it is indeed sad for his family/friends, its real hard living without someone you love.

Maybe it was raining.

He must have had a beautiful view up there

Maybe it was raining.

even when its raining. its not an easy thing.for the smart asses around here: jumping is easy, yes, but thinking about your death and not being able to talk/share stuff with anybody and knowing that you are going to hurt a lot of people by jumping is far from easy.

And it probably is a beautiful vieuw, but I figured you never saw the view falling down.

how weird... that place is usually packed with people and the fences are quite high too. How come no one noticed what he was doing in time? I feel sorry for the people who were there, no one deserves to see such a thing

what i really wonder is what was he thinking on the way down, thats a pretty long fall and you must have a few seconds to think while coming down.
has anybody lost anyone they care for to suicide in here before cause to me it seems that a few have by the way i have read a few peoples post on different threads concerning suicide and deaths.

I knew 2 persons who committed suicide 2 years ago, but they weren't really my friends. One of my best friends really thought about suicide once, but she feels better now. It must be so hard to pass through the suicide of your child.

that would seriousely hit anyone hard. especially if you didnt know why they did it cause you would be thinking why did they do it?, why didnt they come to me for help and stuff.

You'd think they would have security up there, seeing as it's not the first time someone has done that. Or electrify the guard fence.
