An extremely unfortunate passerby was killed on May 30th in Xi’an after being landed on by a man who jumped from the 9th floor of a residential high rise.
Police said that the man, who was in his twenties, suffered from a mental illness for which he had received treatment at a hospital in the past. The man’s father reportedly tried to grab hold of his son’s hand before he could jump out of the window, but was unable to hold on.
The tragic incident left both the man and the passerby dead.
Last month, a pair of women nearly shared this same senseless fate when a suicidal man fell on them inside of Shanghai’s IAPM Mall. The man did not survive the fall, while one of the women was seriously injured.
“If you decide to kill yourself that is your own choice, please don’t take anyone else with you,” wrote one Weibo user at the time.
