A woman jumped off from a ledge at the Ganghui Plaza in the Xuhui district of Shanghai around 10 a.m. this morning. When the police arrived at the scene, the woman was lying motionless on the ground, dead.
Eyewitnesses said that the woman appeared to be a visitor to the mall, between 30 to 40 years old and “not bad looking”.
A police investigation has been launched into the incident.
Last month, a woman leapt to her death from the fifth floor of a Changsha shopping mall, accidentally hitting an adult man and a three-year-old child below. The woman was killed on the spot, the man was injured and the child fortunately walked away unscathed.
